Inferno on the Doorstep

After the night (13th June 2017) it happened I had walked out of my residential street to go on to the local Tube station to make an anticipated visit somewhere. However, although it was early morning I found I could hardly move anywhere long enough to be able to travel easily out of my area. The street  was mostly empty and cordoned off with police on bikes zooming protectively about.

Darcy Lange: Enduring Time

Darcy Lange studied Sculpture at the RCA and graduated in 1971, the same year as I did. So it was shocking to recently hear that he had died in 2005. How easily we all lose touch with each other. I knew him as a fellow student who would occasionally come by the Fashion School and ask me to sew up some canvasses for his installations.

Harriet Aston 'Dancing Mania'

Harriet Aston’s installation at AND eventSpace transformed a white cool gallery environment into a forest of mysterious soft forms....
