A few shows

A few galleries lately. I have been a little slow off the mark, but went to an opening at C3. The show is still on until this weekend.

Vivian Cooper Smith's UnNatural Light explores the issues around our sense of self; our identity. A series of documentary style photographic portraits shot, printed, crumpled and then shot again. The surface is appealing, I love scrunched paper and I also love the warping of the portraits. There is something a little uncanny, portraits of us and our worlds crumbling.

I didn't take any photos, except of this, in the other room, 'Hanging Garden' by Caroline Askew. An undulating nightmare wall of crochet and knit, which had a weirdly magnetic effect on both of our woolie beanie heads.
