visual poetry. playing with text. prints. there were prints created by typing with different colours from a typewriter. some looked like cross stitch samplers which i thought was quite charming. liliane lijn had rotating cones of poetry! the picture above is one of janice kerbell's circus poster style graphic/poetry pieces.
I loved this one! How storytelling influences design...it's like they set it up for my personal enjoyment! And I'll probably go multiple times as it is free. It had 3 gorgeous sections, Forest, Castle, Heaven/Hell all beautifully set up and you can see some of my favourite pieces above. Which I suddenly realise are all dead animal related. Intriguing.
It's the second time I've posted about Julia Lohmann's work. I really like it. She uses her work to make a point, and can use or concern something found to be repulsive and yet her work is so elegant and beautiful.
Interesting little exhibition with two parts. First is old childhood story illustrations, second is artists storytelling, illustrations and films. I liked Oskar Kokoschka's artist illustrations best. He makes a story from where he was in his life, like a storybook diary. I guess this is what I do so is probably why I'm drawn to it. But I also like the drawing and colours. Picture above is from The Dreaming Youths by Oskar Kokoschka.
All I found a shame is that it would have been lovely to have some books to actually look through. A little picturebook corner. But maybe that's just me.
