Good things come in small packages at the John Moores

The tiny figure which inspired Angela’s John Moores painting

We had a really fascinating talk from John Moores artist, Angela Lizon on Tuesday. This little figure was found in a charity shop, and made a perfect subject for Angela who is intrigued by kitsch and how it can be transformed into something unique.

‘Made in Taiwan’ was the smallest submission from more than 3,000 entries to the competition. You can see how little it is in the photograph- it is the second painting from the right.

Next Talk Tuesday is the turn of prize winner Stephen Nicholas. He will be discussing the intriguing ‘Gallery‘ from 1pm.
