Drawing Together | ArtWorks Studios | 2021
Working in a collaborative space, a collection of artists produce abstract work through a process of self expression. Both in person and over video chat, these ongoing workshops encourage these individuals to develop their own artistic practises, by learning to embrace their own natural intuition. This short documentary was produced during the 2020 lockdown.
Altered Places was a month-long residency at Sidney + Matilda, showcasing the work of artists with physical and learning disabilities. Throughout their residency, the artists created a body of work exploring their chosen themes of movement, environment and light by responding to creative briefs set by Sheffield artists Christopher Jarratt, Joanna Whittle, Roanna Wells and Lea Torp Nielson. All artists involved in Altered Places are represented and supported by ArtWorks. ArtWorks is a not for profit organisation which provides creative opportunities, placements and help with artist development for adults with physical and learning disabilities. Supported by City of Ideas.
A Film by Peter Martin - ArtWorks & Bloc Projects Present: WE ARE HERE
In collabroation with Bloc Projects, We are Here showcases works by artists of ArtWorks. All the works featured are bright and vivid featuring neon and fluorescent colours. The artists involved felt these colours represented their positivity as a group and through using different mediums each artist has made a piece which is personal to them. Some pieces explore the natures of different materials and textures, whilst other express feelings or present challenges to the viewer. Thank you to Peter Martin for making this short film. www.petermartin.co.uk
