This week's #homewithprg journal idea takes inspir This week's #homewithprg journal idea takes inspiration from Gerald Lewers' 'untitled' sculpture, carved in 1934 from  Blackwood. A gift from Gerald’s daughters, Tanya and Darani Lewers in 1979 and now part of the Gallery’s permanent collection. You can see in this semi-abstract, figurative form that Gerald has taken inspiration from two intertwined bodies. Gerald was a master at translating a sense of movement into a sculptural shape and often found inspiration in both native animals and the human body in movement. This week, choose a living subject such as an animal or a person and see if you can abstract it down to a simpler version of itself, like Gerald has done in β€˜untitled’, where we can identify a head, a shoulder etc but no details. Try to find the general / large shapes and flowing lines of your subject. The Gallery’s artist-designed garden has artworks throughout! And you are welcome to bring your sketch book along with you when you visit, sit in the garden and draw in this idyllic location. πŸ“—
