Shadows of little yellow flowers on the grey pavement
a happy junk shop find to brighten my day. I love a good whisk..
I realised as I was having a clear out at home at my desk that there was a little collection starting to happen with little things that needed mending, found things and photos from friends. Sometimes the accidental can create such lovely little gatherings entirely unintentionally…
I am running out of space on my work bench in the studio. I think I need to think about a storing system for when these boxes are finished…
I went to London to catch the Rauchenberg show at Tate Modern before it finished. I really enjoyed revisiting his work and seeing some new pieces that I hadn’t seen before. The combines are probably still my favourite but some of his early materials experiments were really rather lovely too. When I was there I went and had a look at Tillmans exhibition aswell as revisiting some of my favourite Louise Bourgeois pieces in the new building.
I love the use of family dresses and the suspended abstractness. Until I encountered these I always associated her work with her spider sculptures but have since then found quite a lot of her work really inspirational.
Working on some new boxes in the studio at the moment. I have been using a shelf and a drawer I was given by another artist creating some larger pieces. It is interesting how the change of scale is quite challenging.
