Got off to very late start today because it took me so long to write yesterday’s post about Image 17. So didn’t head out until mid afternoon today. Went up to Hoe Street to have a quick look in Lot One Ten completely forgetting the E17 rule that nothing opens on Mondays.
Popped into Celsius on way to library and found some really cool stuff from the igloo people's art organisation! Did seem a little top heavy with work by Michael D. Bowles but that’s partly because his work was labelled more largely and clearly than anyone else. In general I preferred his print work to the paintings although I liked the one behind the decks a lot and the big red slash painting works well in the Celsius setting.
There were two really good black and white photos but not sure who they were by. I was not sure who did the two watercolours either but they gave a rather contemplative contrast to most of the other work.
Finally did a dash through the Mall to see Wendy le Ber's artist books in the front window of Waterstones. The way in which Wendy describes this medium and her relationship to it is very interesting and it was a really nice idea to put them in a bookshop window. However, I think they are another example where a much bigger sign was needed, including more obvious information about what they were. They were also too low in the window and very few people seemed to notice they were there which was a shame.
