Artist Alison Lapper is a painter, photographer and sculptor, awarded an MBE for her services to art. Born without arms, she is the subject of Marc Quinn’s famous sculpture, ‘Alison Lapper Pregnant,’ which occupied the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square and featured prominently at the 2012 Para-Olympic opening ceremony.
In this documentary she explores the world of her hero, William Blake - 19th century painter, poet, rebeland visionary. Best-known for the rousing hymn and sporting anthem, Jerusalem, Blake was also a mystic and iconoclast who produced some of the most mind expanding art of all time. Alison finds out why this man, overlooked by his peers and considered insane, is more relevant than ever before, and had a profound influence on everyone from Bob Dylan and punk priestess Patti Smoth to comic book genius Alan Moore.
