Just to reinforce my previous comments about David Shrigley, here is one of many animations that were playing in the exhibition space. This is called ‘New Friends’. I really loved the idea behind this one, and it also made me think of our first uni project this year about shapes! Bit sad really…


I have always loved David Shrigleys work and it was by magic there was an exhibition of his on whilst I was in London for the day. I didn’t feel quite as ninja-ish here though (mainly because the security men looked more like gangster bodyguards…) so these photos are mainly off google. The little drawings are my own replicas of some of his work in the exhibition. As I walked in the tour guide I walked past said “Prepare to be surprised” to her group, and that certainly does sum up the collection. He creates things that people would not expect, and makes basic items interesting/ different. Definitely worth seeing. Even bought the book at the end! Dedication I say!!I have always loved David Shrigleys work and it was by magic there was an exhibition of his on whilst I was in London for the day.

I went to the Saatchi gallery and this piece really caught my eye. Its by Jeppe Hein and called Mirror Wall (Artists really have a knack for naming things obviously…). He seems to work a lot with glass, framing and lighting so wasn’t surprised to see something like this under his name. I started off taking photos of it but realised quite quickly a video was much more effective. It’s basically a huge mirror with a vibration pattern, so it makes everyone look all.. squiggly? It certainly got a lot of peoples attention. Suppose that’s the point though eh?


A hop, skip and a jump (aka a 2 hour train journey) and I was in Landan Taaaahn. I had a strict time schedule to stick to because I was literally there for the day only. So you can imagine my joy when I turned up at the Royal Academy to see a massive queue for David Hockney! The words “It’s an hour wait” uttered down the line and I thought is it worth it??? Well I persisted. And I’m not sure how I feel about him as an artist. His work was good, and he really does have a talent, but it seems like he’s just been painting the same thing over 20 years. I wouldn’t like to look back at my work and realise it all looks quite the same. The best thing is that he does most of his current work on an iPad. Oh there is hope for us appletechstuff lovers in the art world yet. I also would like to point out that there was no photography allowed in the exhibition, so all my photos were taken ninja style. I believe that is me taking a risk to appreciate art. Hope you enjoy :).A hop, skip and a jump (aka a 2 hour train journey) and I was in Landan Taaaahn.

After what seemed like a mission to get to, I found “The Gallery”. Yeah, I was also astounded with their originality in naming the place. Up what felt like a dirty back alley was an upstairs gallery with the shutters down. It felt like the equivalent to an art crack den. When inside though, it was so clean and well, gallery like! The guy in there was very helpful (although slightly scouse hillbilly..) and talked to me about the art on display. I have put some of my favourites in collages above. I would love to do lino cut, and look at this, I actually appreciated some typography in art!! What is the world coming to???After what seemed like a mission to get to, I found “The Gallery”.

I’d been walking past the Bluecoat in Liverpool everyday for about 3 weeks and was curious at the display in the window. I eventually ventured inside. I actually walked straight into a talk from the artist herself (it was obviously fate…) so got some in depth reasoning behind some of her work. Her exhibition on teeth was to express the transition made between milk and adult teeth, and the use of stem cells to fix damaged organs. She also let me sit in the body fat chair (Yeah, a chair made of body fat). A few of those images are above but it’s well worth a visit if its still on.I’d been walking past the Bluecoat in Liverpool everyday for about 3 weeks and was curious at the display in the window.

I’ve started to think that my year at college was a lot more intense than my first year of university. I had a brief last week that involved me colouring in with Sharpies and college pushed my limits. The images above are from said college of 1. An original drawing of mine and 2. It edited on Photoshop. I gained so many skills, much more from staying in the lines of a colouring in project. I presume it’ll get better next year but I don’t understand why they feel they’ve had to take us down a level when everyone in the class has the same foundation course. Anyway, least it gives me a reason to show off some of my fave work I’ve done so far :).I’ve started to think that my year at college was a lot more intense than my first year of university.
