As Light Falls Through

Sadly I have not been near this blog in a while - it's been far too long and I have really missed it. It's funny, 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' is something I was always skeptical of, but then I have moments like this. I miss writing and reflecting on things as for me that is my...

Vinyl Icons: Persian Pop and Turkish Psychedelia Part II

'Vinyl Icons: Persian Pop and Turkish Psychedelia' is a unique exhibition unlike anything I've seen in Newcastle before, despite having lived here for almost three years now. This show  perfectly encapsulates what contemporary art represents. It is about making art in the present and using this as a platform to reflect and comment on the world... Continue Reading →

Sensual Materials

I have this absolute nightmare of my tights ALWAYS getting holes in them. It drives me nuts; my toes peep out, the ladders run up the back of my leg, I don't think I own a single perfect pair of tights! So being an artsy creative person I of course think of new ways to... Continue Reading →

Benedict Drew

I think it's say to say that Benedict Drew's wacky installation was by far my favourite work in The British Art Show 8. Exhibited within the Talbot Rice Gallery, Drew's work is the definition of transforming a space into something completely new and exciting. What had been quite a clean cut angular-looking gallery space prior to... Continue Reading →

British Art Show 8

We had an art trip to Edinburgh on Friday to see the British Art Show 8. I felt like a school girl again being on the bus with everyone. Let's just say I'm not a morning person when lacking my usual caffeine intake! It was lovely to get away from Newcastle to a city as... Continue Reading →
