These paintings are simply wonderful - buttery textures and colours that pop. He is a dab hand at the old still life too. Well worth a click over! He was a jolly good friendly & approachable chap too. My favourite exhibitor (hope it's ok to say that).
These ceramics are so beguiling - Myung Nam "tells stories which are universal" and these little beauties are part of the 'eye' series. I can't really describe the emotional response I had, other than to say there's something very dark here to contrast with their aesthetic beauty. Go to her website for a rather better explanation and plenty more eye candy!

I love Steve's work - my favourite pieces are from Found Objects - not only does he have an exquisite ability to place objects, but also writes the most amazing descriptions - please go to his website to see.
Dots and Full Stops, no.1, 2007
newsprint, pritt stick
I loved loved loved these. Alex creates from newspapers, meticulously cutting and sticking to create finished pieces that you could stare at for hours. I dread to think what would happen if I were to attempt this! My pritt stick would be covered in bits of paper and my canvas would be blank!
When I was at school I had singing lessons ... one of the exercises was to sing "lemon" up and down the scale - (for clear articulation) I still sing it in my head whenever I think of lemons, and recently whenever I tended my lovely Crystal Lemon Cucumbers ...
These are really old fashioned cucs ... bristly skin and big flat white seeds ... but oh so delicious - the faintest citrus tang combined with proper cucumber taste ... Definitely a repeat (arf arf) for next year ...
(They are, incidentally, 'kinder' to the digestion, like burpless varieties)
Oh yeah, did I mention the colour? mmmmmm ... altogether now ...
