Suffocating forms - Alice Morey workshop

Sculpture workshop with Alice Morey

We are excited and honoured to announce a winter workshop from international artist Alice Morey. Morey is a London and Berlin- based interdisciplinary artist, with an MA from Chelsea College of Art, London and is represented by Lehmann + Silva gallery in Porto.

This workshop is for those artists and enthusiasts who are interested in developing sculptural work; building a connection to the 2D and 3D through making with the hands. It is a unique opportunity to develop new skills or further develop your craft working alongside an international contemporary artist.

Despite the unique nature of this workshop no experience is necessary, it is open to anyone who wants to have fun with materials, play and experiment.

This two part workshop with Alice Morey involves collecting various found objects and materials from markets and unusual places in Berlin (Turkish shops in Neukolln / asian markets / 99 cent shop) to then combine them together ( glue / tie them) in abstract forms, dipping them and molding them into sculptures using plaster, wire and colours

Biography of Jesse Leroy Smith

Born London 1966. Jesse Leroy Smith lives in Newlyn and Brighton. He studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and a Postgraduate Diploma in Painting at the Royal Academy Schools in London. He exhibits internationally in commercial and public galleries, art fairs, and travels widely for art residencies and research. A recent tour through Northern Europe showing collaborative films in alternative venues concluded in a group show at the Martin Asbaek Gallery In Copenhagen. In 2016 he was awarded with a major commission from Cornish Mining World Heritage Sites, to commemorate the mining legacy with a series of public performances and a suite of copper etchings. This highly acclaimed project then received funding from the Arts Council England for him to make ‘Assembly’, 20 portraits on copper plates.

He curates multimedia shows in dis-used and transitory spaces by gathering large groups of artists, performers, educators, experts, organisations and the public to collaborate and re imagine ‘Art shows’, these provocative spaces have become reinvented to become public venues such as cinemas or art centres. He helped launch the Arts centre CAST in Cornwall with the monumental ‘Darkrooms’ he curated and commemorated the 75th anniversary of an art deco lido with 90 artists showing artworks in 75 cubicles and the water with the event ‘ART 75’. Exhibitions such as ’Revolver’ in an ex-car-showroom and PRINT! in a Public gallery and many more all bear the hallmark of Smith’s belief in bringing students, graduates to show alongside established practitioners with international reputations.

He is exhibits with Jill George Gallery, London and Arusha Gallery, Edinburgh. He leads the Mentoring Programme for emerging artists at Newlyn School of Art and is a visiting lecturer at Falmouth University. This year he staged the solo show ‘Force Majeure’ at Tremenheere sculpture gallery and gardens in Cornwall and concluded it with ‘Sol Force’ for the summer solstice, a curated event with over 50 artist’s in aid of of ‘Freedom from Torture’. He continues to be mentored by curator, writer and critic Sacha Craddock.

His own work is influenced by his relentless collaborations, travels, teaching and public projects and so explores the balance between collective identities and individual expression.

Artist Residency 

Jesse Leroy Smith    

15th February - 15th March 2020  


‘The Inhabitants’ 


Artist, curator, mentor and collaborator Jesse Leroy Smith will be working at the Burnt Sienna studio for one month from the 15th of February until 15th of March 2020.  The school environment is the ideal site for him to create new work in a city that means so much to him. Gathering together his drawings made on the U Bahn, trams and in museums with found materials and contributions from students and visitors, he will amass a bank of visual ‘evidence’. This wall or screen will be animated by collage, typography and painterly edits. Whether it resolves into an immersive arcade of images or a singular icon, an abstract tapestry or a processional banner will depend on everyone involved.
