'God's last acre' by William Mathias
‘God’s last acre’ by William Mathias

Lawrence Mathias is a north London based artist who likes to work across a range of media. He uses drawing, painting, film, music, models and words in much of his artwork, with poetry often the starting point for visuals. His artwork frequently has a social or political edge to its content, though not always. He values the community and collaborative opportunities which art projects can offer. In his own words ‘Poetry is one of the best creative ways of bringing people together, and can be combined in all kinds of exciting ways with other art forms’.

Workshop with Lawrence before the night, 4-6pm – to book your FREE place email, secretagentartist@hotmail.com.

Poetry in Motion WORD!shop

Join Lawrence Mathias for this illustration, animation and poetry focused workshop. Using a combination of poems and words written at the workshop, as well as pre-written material, we will illustrate and create simple, interesting films, using a combination of live film and images. An opportunity to create a soundtrack, using words and performance, will round the session off, and a short film featuring as much of the workshop material as possible will subsequently be made. Participants will be encouraged throughout to record their work and also make films.
