The Creating Balance Project

"What happens when you twin ten artists/designers with ten photographers from a local community? With the help of an Anglepoise lamp, the aim was to explore the true meaning of balance at work and in life and to document its significance in the creative process. 

In partnership with Anglepoise UK, Strong Island and the University of Portsmouth”. This exhibition is on @ Aspex Gallery until 16 March. Here are a few of my favourites.

Casting the Line

A few weeks ago I visited this exhibition of beautiful drawings by Howard Tangye at Hus Gallery in London. “Casting the Line” is an exquisite collection of works drawn over a period of two decades. The exhibition is on until 15 March.
