W6: weekend

On Sunday I had the good fortune to be in London so I went to the House of Illustration to see a small exhibition of Laura Carlin’s work. Photography was forbidden, so I can only really link you to the page and highly reccomment it. 

I’d met Laura before at the Vanguard court Studios (and thought she was AmaZingggg btw) and I know I have photos from back then kicking about on a hard drive. I’m sure of it. I’ll have a root around!

Laura’s work focuses on storytelling, thus connecting it to my line of inquiry in Constellation (Folk/Lore), and her sketchbook, sculpture work, and illustration on the whole pinpoint her as being particularly curious regarding the human form (making her a figure comparable to Claire Curneen in her interdisciplinarity! I love them both to so that probably helps).

I did some drawings while I was there:
