EXTRA EXTRA! Live Portrait sitting Tate Modern

Live Portrait sitting Tate Modern Wednesday 21 September 2011, 14.00–16.30 Tate Modern Studio C Level 3.

An open studio exploring evidence of disability in the Tate collection. I’m painting again!  This time its a live portrait of disability rights activist, poet and artist Vince Laws. He’s traveling all the way from Norwich to have his portrait in the Revealing Culture:HeadOn Collection

Join us to see the portrait unfold, and talk to Vince and myself about our lives and art http://www.tate.org.uk/modern/eventseducation/talksdiscussions/24521.htm

“Tanya arranged the space so that the sitters, and Tanya’s works in progress, faced directly into the gallery once the double doors were opened. This was an irresistible lure for hundreds of members of the public who had the chance to talk to Tanya and her sitter of the day, and also to pick up some drawing materials and join in.”Marcus Dickey Horley, Curator of Access Projects, Tate Modern.

in the mean time I’m about to start a new painting of the larger than life Liz Carr to put in to the Royal Academy summer Show next Yr an into National Portrait BP Awards. Also planning to take the exhibition to Tate Modern so watch this space.
