London

Been up and down to London several times over the last 3 weeks. Spent 3 days pounding the streets until my feet hurt, seeing what’s new in jewellery and fashion. Went to Dover Street Market,  Spitalfield Market and Brick Lane ( for the first time ever!!) Checked out Libertys and of course went to all the usual places Lesley Craze, Contemporary Applied Arts and Electrum who are celebrating their 40th Birthday this year.  Also soaked up loads of Art, 13 rooms of Miro at the Tate Modern which was a pretty magical afternoon and I have never really been that crazy about his work. And they have done it again!! Dirt at The Wellcome Collection, amazing exhibition could have spent all day in there. I also treated myself to a couple of bits and pieces……..some colourful plastic stuff from Habitat and some fab rings from Flow Gallery.

My haul of stuff from London :)

7 days of djcad Degree Show Favs – 5 Sarah Johnston

Today Fine Art student Sarah Johnston her artist statement on the djcad 2011 Degree Show site just says “What’s red and smells like blue paint? Red paint.”

Irreverent and humorous her work concerns the use of internet forums as a way of coping with the unspoken anxieties experienced in daily life.

 

7 days of djcad Degree Show Favs – 2 Daniel Cook

Daniel Cook , Fine Art, I really like this show, especially the large photograph on the stairs. He says in his artists statement that his work “focuses on engaging the ambiguity between reality and fiction”. His photographs have an eerie quality, there is something not quite right about the images but you can’t quite work out which parts of them are real and which are not.
