Kirstie van Noort (1986) sees design as a way to communicate a certain process or the story behind a material. When she is intrigued by one of these a study starts by making detailed test and experiments. The outcome of the research could form the foundation of the concept behind a final product or result in the research itself.

In 2011 visual artists Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen decided to cross the lines of their individual disciplines -photography and sculpture- and embark on a mutual ‘furniture project’.
Together they developed a series of unique design pieces, minimal in form and detailling but maximal in its usability and use of materials.
During the London Design Festival there is an exhibition at Viaduct,
1-10 Summers Street, London, EC1R 5BD.  September 12th-21st 2013

Ways To Escape

Ways To Escape” was a small mixed media exhibition at 2022NQ, a small gallery space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The exhibition was only a week long (14th – 23rd March 2013) – I caught it on the last day and glad I did.  Above are my favorite works from the show, I love the neon ladder falling from the ceiling and the medical drip had headphones attached – which put you straight into a hospital bedside intensive care scenario!
Way’s To Escape featured 12 artists and was curated by Saoirse Higgins & Fabrizio Cocchiarella.

Raqib Shaw

Raqib Shaw

Raqib Shaw is an Indian-born, London-based artist who shot to fame in the international art world at the age of 33.
His opulent paintings and sculptures evoke the work of Old Masters such as Holbein and Bosch in their treatment of often unsettling subjects. But they also reflect the ornate style of Persian miniatures and Kashmiri and Japanese textiles. Beneath their beautiful jewel-like surface is a collection of dark and violent images inspired by ancient myths and religious tales from both East and Western tradition.

Paper Cuts


“The First Cut” was a free exhibition that ran from October 2012 to January 2013 at Manchester Art Gallery.
The show, dedicated to art works purely made from paper included thirty one international artists. Below are two artists that caught my eye at the exhibition.

Peter Callesen

 “Looking Back III” Acid-free A4 80gsm paper glue, framed by Peter Callesen
Love this artist, many of his works seem to build themselves from single sheets of paper, a great transition from two – three dimensions. Click on his name more his website where you will find so quite amazing art works.
His next show will be at Galería Valle Ortí, Valencia, Spain.

Yuken Teruya

 “Notice – Forest”, Paper cut bag 2009 by Yuken Teruya.
Yuken Teruya is an artist based in New York.
He works with various materials such as toilet paper rolls, paper shopping bags and butterfly chrysalises. His ideas often reflect life and history of Okinawa, his homeland, an island near Taiwan. You can see more of his work here.
