During 2003 Gary was working as artist in residence for Welling School in Kent. The secondary school was recently awarded specialist art school status by the government and has attracted funding to transform the school into a centre of excellence.
During his residency there Gary produced a number of mosaic panels for the corridors in the new art block. These panels which run from floor to ceiling depict different aspects of the schools arts department.
The panels were developed with the pupils and explore many differing ways of making mosaics including three dimensional work and photo-pixel mosaics.
