Be inspired by the paintings of South Korean artist Young Maeng and Yorkshire-based Ellie Moore in their exhibitions at King Street Studios Art Gallery.


Stepping In, Seeing Through

A creative writing workshop with an emphasis on poetry, in which we will explore what makes us more authentic in today’s world. Through writing exercises we will reflect upon our relationship to technology, social constructs and ways of seeing. Enquire of and explore our behaviours and reflections through work with the paintings of artists Ellie Moore and Hyeyoung Maeng. Both artists‘ work makes enquiry about how and what we see. Their distinct gaze in which the micro and the macro are painted gives us a strong setting in which to ground our writing work.

Choice of two dates:
Sunday 10th February 2pm – 4.30pm
Tuesday 12th February 6.30pm – 9pm

Ruth Quinn is a poet of the west coast. Born and raised in South Wales, she now lives in the North West and cannot consider living too far from the sea. Her poetry captures complex moments of living and dying and our visceral responses to these experiences. She has been runner-up in a number of small poetry prizes.
