Artwork of the Week – As You See It


Liverpool artwork of the week – 30. Untitled by Unknown in ‘As You See It’ at the Bridewell 6 to 15 August 2008

I really like this picture.
Most of the works here are untitled and anonymous.
Its a selection of works by the service users of Crown Street Mental Health Resource Centre.
Organised by Dave Roberts and Keiron Finnetty.

The exhibition offers a direct, honest and intimate experience of an ongoing therapeutic process, simultaneously confronting our desire to search for a higher meaning in artwork and challenging the viewer’s automatic acceptance of the work at face value.
