Reading Between the Lines at Dreamspace Gallery
Yesterday saw the opening of Reading Between the Lines, a solo show of work by Stephen Carter at London’s Dreamspace gallery. The painter started out creating pieces based on the graphic layout and visual nuances of newspaper pages; but the recent works on show are focussed on the fabric of the city, drawing inspiration from planning and urban design, stripping back the accoutrements of the city to a simplified structure.
The show runs until 1 February at Dreamspace Gallery, Craftwork Studios, 3 Dufferin Street, London, EC1Y
Camila Prada’s ceramics
Camila Prada emailed us before Christmas, showing off her wonderful ceramics. So, rather than suggesting they’d make the perfect gift, we thought we’d thing-we-like them now so you can buy them in the sale and not have to worry about giving them away to anyone. We love the rather fly Gold Digga piggy bank and charming Sweet Talker sugar pourer.
Hofesh Shechter & Antony Gormley
Yesterday, we brought you a delightful coffin the shape of Antony Gormley’s iconic Angel of the North statue . Today, we bring you a reminder that Gormley himself will be collaborating with Hofesh Shechter on Survivor, which will be preformed at the Barbican in London next week. Visit www.barbican.org.uk for more information.
