Last night I went to an event organised by Creative Calderdale. This was my first event I had been to organised by them and it was a talk by Artist Paddy Hartley.
Now, I’ll be honest, until last night I had never heard of him (even though he is originally from Dewsbury) or his work. But he was quite inspiring! I absolutely LOVED his work on the Soldiers and the telling of their stories in his work and the final pieces I thought were brilliant. I have a lot of respect for Our Forces and so I really connected with Project Facade, The Gillies Archives & The Faces of Battle Exhibition and I would recommend you all to take a look at his website.
