WORK by two Keighley-district artists is being showcased on Bradford’s Big Screen.

Haworth-based Judy Sale and Keighley’s Caleb Lewis are among the latest six professional artists from across the area to be part of the initiative.

Their work will be shown on the screen – in Centenary Square – at 12.30pm every day, throughout May and June.

The bi-monthly Artist’s Choice presentations are organised by Silsden man Colin Neville, curator of the Not Just Hockney website, in association with Bradford UNESCO City of Film.

“This is a chance for members of the public to see artwork that they might not otherwise encounter,” he said.

“These artists are keeping alive the very strong art tradition we have locally. And it’s this sheer diversity of art talent that will help us win the bid to become the City of Culture in 2025.

“To gain the City of Culture title would be a marvellous boost to the city – economically, artistically and socially too – and would provide a much-needed morale and pride boost to the whole district."

Judy said she hoped the work she was displaying on the Big Screen would “resonate with the viewer”.

She added: “The three collages exhibited on the Big Screen are from a new series of 17 works I have done, called Diary of an Artist in Lockdown at Bronte Square, Haworth.

“The works, on paper and of mixed media, are meant to be a whimsical commemoration and portrayal of my year living in isolation with only my neighbours and the TV to watch.”

Caleb uses the stippling drawing technique, in which areas of light and shadow are created using dots, to produce his work.

He said: “My pictures are each created from thousands of individual dots, produced with 0.05 and 0.03mm nibs.

“I attempt to distil the subject into a balance of line and shape, which interprets my own experiences and imagines those I’ve missed.

“My aim is to produce artwork that tells a story, but in an ethereal and visually-pleasing way.”

The other latest artists to be featured on the screen are Ian Beesley, a Bradford-born documentary photographer; Mussarat Rahman, community artist and activist, and Qashif Masud, wood artist and craftsman, both based in Bradford; and Geraldine Thompson, a painter from Addingham.
