There were some interesting artists to discover so here are a few of the pieces that spoke to me.
Gentrification (Commercial Genocide/The Message) by Shaquille Keith is a dual piece of poetry and painting. Read and look – it’s worth the effort.
I’ve featured Hanna ten Doornkaat here in the past but she’s now begun using textiles – an interesting development in her exploration of the ritual of repetition.
I’m a sucker for the monochrome and enjoyed Henry Woolway‘s painting.
You may have spotted some of these rabbits in city streets over the years – the artist responsible is Benjamin Irritant who began making protest statements with his street art back in the ’90s. Long may he continue.
Again, in total contrast, is Bea Last, who works with recycled and found items. The process of making is her focus and what we see is the end result( Red Bags below).
