Lucy Jones on Radio 3

This just came in via email from Silk Top Hat:

10:45pm - 11pm
BBC Radio 3
Tom Shakespeare is delivering five essays this week on Radio 3 at 10:45pm
each day. He talks about Lucy on Friday. His theme is "to challenge
stereotypical ideas about creativity and disability by celebrating five
disabled artists, discussing how their impairments fuelled their genius."

British painter Lucy Jones was born with cerebral palsy, but she has no intention of identifying as a disabled artist. She wants her portraits to offer a universal comment on humanity. Tom Shakespeare discusses how the challenges she faces have fuelled her creative genius.

Lucy Jones' third solo show at the Silk Top Hat Gallery, 'An Awkward Beauty' featuring her paintings and prints, opened here last October.

If you miss the programme you can 'listen again', Lucy recommends listening to all this week's interviews to put her episode in context.

The series is:
Mon:  Abul 'Ala Al-Ma'arri, Arabic poet
Tue:  Bryan Pearce, Cornish artist
Wed:  Arthur Bispo do Rosario, Brazilian sculptor
Thu:  Goya, Klee, Matisse
Fri:  Lucy Jones
