Sunday 24 June at 3pm
Wendy Sharpe’s self-portrait is inspired by Victorian-era photographs which featured ghostly figures. Wendy will talk about the interpretations made from these images  and her interest in exploring the seen and unseen in her work. With a background in street art, Luke Cornish works with aerosol and multiple layers of stencils to create works  deep in meaning, depicting accurately rendered and highly evocative representations of their subject.
