52 shades of Liam

26th May 2021

As if our Creative Lead, Liam Nunn, wasn’t busy enough over the last year, he also challenged himself to 52 self-portraits – one for every week of the year – and has just submitted his 52nd. Phew! They’re now going to be exhibited in the Jersey Museum in August – don’t forget to put the date with 52 Liams in your diary.

 

 

Liam’s masterful mugshots were one of the community highlights over the last year, and grew a steady following week by week. He also showcased on the “Connect with Art” blog, in the article, Connecting with Liam Nunn: Anyone can be good at art, written by Eliza Allan. He says:

“In the pieces, I used my face because I had access to it and the ability to do different things with it. I like art to be what it is, even if it’s a little bit uncomfortable or grotesque. I’m able to do that with my own face more than I’m able to do it with anyone else’s face. I have been able to push things that were interesting to me since I’m not going to get upset if it’s not flattering.”
