Debbie Smyth

I came across Debbie Smyth’s work last week. It’s absolutley fantastic- from a glance her drawings look very architectural and clean. Get a little closer though, and you can see that each line is made by a length of thread wound around a dress-making pin. Fabulous. Why didn’t I think of that?

Cake-o-rama

Met with Jenny Brownrigg and Laura Simpson from DOJ exhibs this morning. It looks like my plans for a small cake expo could become bigger than i’d first expected! With an emphasis on domestic craft as art, they suggested I look at Merlyn Riggs, Martha Rosler and Ebba Redman, to add further “layers” to the exhibition cake. Ebba’s graduating this…
