Workshop with Expression 3 Heavy Rock Keith Harrison

Installation Illustration With Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery

I had a lovely day yesterday at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery working on a giant Illustration Installation of a Wave Breaker. This was to bring the Wave Breaker Project ‘Heavy Rock’, which the Museum has commissioned, into the museum (on a much smaller scale!) The actual wave breaker which artist Keith Harrison, is going alter for Expressions 3 this June will be around 100 tonnes. We started very well, with the help of three brilliant Illustration Students from Plymouth University creating, or re-creating, Keith Harrison’s drawing and then one young man and his girlfriend subverted the whole mission!! …after that anything went. We finished with some great mark making and some very colourful sea creatures which Yi Lim and Emily Mead had drawn, these were reproduced as colouring in sheets for the families as part of the Science Week that the museum was holding. Thank you very much to Amanda Hale, Emily Mead and Yi Lim for all their help.
