I found the exhibition thought-provoking, and it is still simmering in my mind. For me it is one of those slow burners, thoughts of which pop up while I am doing something else rather than fully demanding space in my brain all the time. One of the thoughts relates to a topic which I chew over from time to time: that of how different a 2D photo of a quilt or even detail of a quilt can look from the actual work. And we see works in photographic form so much more often than for real.
The piece in the exhibition which appealed to me most on Tuesday, and continues to do so in the catalogue is that of Anne Worringer: Les bulles bleues et roses.
Here is a detail from the catalogue:
But in the end what appealed to me most of all was not in the exhibition: it was a piece of ceramic sculpture by John Maltby, rather like the Sentinel angel below. Unfortunately the woman with the shield was rather too large for my purse, and so I have come away with my mind full, but my arms empty. And now full of thoughts and various inspirations I'm off tomorrow to a drawing workshop over the long weekend.
