Lisa Temple-Cox is one of two artists working with North School on the CXXV project. Her work includes richly intricate and diverse assemblages of objects, collages, drawings paintings and prints. Here is a statement about doing public art and collaborative projects with schools, local and community groups:
“Public and community engagement forms a large part of my practice, and I enable a range of art activities that includes painting – from individual work to large scale murals – assemblage using found objects, collage, and photo-transfer. My public arts commissions are usually informed by a community engagement process, and as well as public and private commissions, I undertake school residencies tailored to meet the needs of the curriculum and/or project theme in hand. I have worked with children and adults of all ages and abilities, and in institutions as diverse as schools, colleges, residential homes, museums and prisons. Projects range from one day drop-in workshops at fetes and fairs, Creative Partnerships school projects, artist residencies, and major public arts commissions.” You can read more about Lisa’s other work projects on her website and through the East Anglian Artists database.
