Jesse Leroy Smith, artist in residence at Winchester College, will exhibit an immersive arcade of images commemorating cultural heroes, friends, family and strangers. Drawing upon a wealth of influences from treasured music and movies to ancient and religious iconography, Jesse will focus on his etchings made at the College, alongside images created by students that he has worked alongside.
Jesse lives and works in Newlyn, Cornwall and Brighton and exhibits internationally. In 2017 he received funding from Arts Council England to make ‘Assembly’, 20 portraits on copper inspired by his commission from the Cornish Mining World Heritage Sites to visualise the area’s mining legacy.
