Lovely little site shopsin's generalstore (very much liking the Lo-fi aesthetic of the website & anyone using 'balloon' is a friend of mine) selling perfect gifts...unfortunately for me..only in the U.S of A...boo, that bacon scarf would have been perfect for my vegetarian mother.
So its not there anymore..and i didn't have a blog to blog it when it was but KIOSK at SCP was a lovely installation..and KIOSK is a really nicely conceived idea..you pay the finders fee but there are some lovely objects and knick knacks sourced from all over the world to buy and fall in love with. The shop install was a triumph too..I believe it was the handy work of Michael Marriott..correct me if i'm wrong?..any way he deserves his own post..which will follow shortly...
Simply amazing pencil drawings from Frank Magnotta. His character drawings are beyond the strange..I'd like the kind of brain that could come up with this kind of thing..although i'd probably scare myself and others. Fantastic madness.
Thank you Swiss Miss..a nice way to start my tuesday morning..where are my pencils?...i may have a no computer day soon...kind of like wear your jeans to the office day...but not.
I'm going to try and get to the age of the marvelous this afternoon as its only on till Thursday and it looks pretty fantastic. I've seen kate Mccquires work online before and was totally blown away but it would be nice to see it in the flesh/feathers.
I also noticed the work of Alastair Mackie which is also in the exhibition..a real must see.
Bit of a sucker for the wooden toy...last weekend we bought a 4 ft Nutcracker soldier from the best antiques shop ever..christened Trevor... pictures coming soon.
The 2nd wooden monkey is fabulous too...by Kay Bojesen
Unfortunately the Hanno Gorilla is out of stock on the kid robot site...boo!
