Lezlie Tilley has recently designed and facilitated a mural project that was painted by second-year students of the Newcastle Art School. The murals are based on her series Pages from an A-less Novel, a methodical work that exemplifies the labour-intensive process that is central to her practice. The series began with Tilley going through the novel Casey and tracing each letter 'a' on paper. She then connected the dots to create abstract geometric shapes. The students reproduced her designs working freehand on the large panels using both projections and templates to recreate the series.
