Art inspiration at the Royal Academy

This week's art trip was an opportunity for our students to see the work of Jasper Johns at the Royal Academy.

 

Jasper Johns: 'Something Resembling Truth' is the first comprehensive survey of the artist's work to be held in the UK in 40 years. Comprising over 150 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints, it reveals the continuities and changes that have occurred over the past six decades and the curiosity and experimentation that Johns continues to apply to his current practice. The group went on to see Iconoclasts: Art out of the Mainstream, a selection of artists work at the Saatchi gallery. It is the tale of the small group of experimental artists who dared to produce often transformational practices of their own inviting the viewers to a modern day ideas of iconoclasm. A thought-provoking and inspirational day which the students responded strongly to.
