British Art Show 8
Visited the British Art Show 8 and these two works were my favourites! Jessica Warboys 'Sea Painting' was just great to see. The making of the work using the sea and its motion just really excites me; the elements being utilized and the work being made outside on the beach and at the east coast (Spurn Point) contribute to the instant vastness of this work...I would like to know what the pigments were she used!
Stuart Kippers work stripping down an old 1979 mini (which will be built back up with the help of ex workers from Longbridge Motors) was a really reminiscent piece of work. The frame of the mini took me back to owning my own mini the stories that subsequently came from owning one (everyone has a story to tell about mini ownership!!) There was a melancholy aspect also how it was to live through those times when Thatcher was priminister
