In 1956 he moved to Paris to work at the Ecole de Beaux Arts and then at the atelier of Gerard Patris. In 1958 Stanley and Robert Erskine set up the Curwen Studio in London and Stanley also began lecturing in li-thography at the Slade School. He went on to work with many artists including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Edward Bawden and John Piper alongside continuing to produce his own lithographs and paintings. He has participated in many group exhibitions as well as having one-man shows and his work is held in private and public collections throughout the world. Stanley is Life President of the Curwen Print Study Centre.
Susan Aldworth is a contempo-rary artist whose work investigates the relationship between mind and body. Her experimental work in print, time-based media and installation includes the Transience etchings printed directly from human brain tissue, and the Reas-sembling the Self suite of lithographs which she printed with Stanley Jones at the Curwen Studio. Her work is held in many public and private collections in-cluding V&A, British Museum, Fitzwilliam Museum and Wellcome Collection. She has exhibited widely including Susan Aldworth: The Portrait Anatomised at the National Portrait Gallery, London, Realisation at Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and most recently Illuminating the Self at Hatton Gallery and Vane in Newcastle. Susan is an associate lecturer on the MA Art & Science at Cen-tral Saint Martin’s and is a regular presenter on BBC Radio.
