30 Minute Portrait Stories

29 – 31 May 2015, RIverfront Theatre.

Exhibition: 30th June – 13th July 2015, The Project Space, Newport. 

What can you do if you only have 30 minutes? This painting project demonstrates possibilities with limited time and resources. Barry J Morgan (aka artist Yuri Nalkhak) joined me on our quest to paint in front of an audience to capture a likeness in contrasting styles...

As well as a portrait, we listened to stories that people shared with us and, in the quiet of the studio, used these fragmented conversations as graphic inspiration.
