I adored Chell Young's degree show at Edinburgh College of Art, I think it has stayed with me because I was so totally taken aback by it.
Chell has made tiny 'Fragile Realities' in intricate detail, models of the elegant Victorian tenement flats in Edinburgh, below, for example, the mirrors stacked against the wall are about 2 cms square, the reality created is breathtaking.
Below: is the front room with the bay window and below it the box in which this mirage is enclosed.
Below: is an attic crammed with boxed and below it the stilted heights of its box.
It was wonderful watching people explore this space and gasp with delight, transported like children into secret worlds.

'A sticky situation' by Amy Steele is a story about a fisherman trying to save his business by bringing his community together with a produce sale at which pride of place is a giant jar of jam. It all goes disastrously wrong but is beautifully depicted in Amy's loose watercolour and pencil drawings.

Continuing my plant themed week with work by Japanese artist Kanae Kouno.
"Why was your heart moved?"
I am trying to solve the question by the act of drawing.
And I want to convey what I felt to someone who is not me.
Through my eyes, through my heart, form and color.
I've been in such me
I think that what is felt and the result of confrontation with questions should be transmitted to the viewer through the work." Kanae Kouno
