"My art practice is concerned with the pace and sequencing of architectural imagery found within urban environments. I work primarily in with silkscreen printing using hand-drawn positives and photographic elements. I am interested in examining the intersection between design and art through the installation of screen-prints and artists books." Eleanor CookThis is Eleanor Cook's strangely hypnotic degree show featuring a table of rhythmic graphic screen printed books which she described as 'Sequencing'.

I have had a strange and busy year so far and I have also broken my coccyx so I also have to have an operation this week which will hopefully enable me to sit down in comfort and return to some projects which have been on hold.
So here come the pigeons!

I have admired Katerina Gorelik's work now for almost a decade and I was thrilled to see she has a new book being published next month called 'Bears on Vacation'.
"This is a light and funny picture book about three Polar Bear brothers who took their first vacation on a tropical beach. The book is about something we are all familiar with: intemperance and passion. The Bears are akin to kids: they want everything, a lot of it, and right now! if it’s ice cream, then all the way to a sore throat; if fruits, all the way to diarrhea; if sports, all the way to bruises. How could it be any other way on vacation!? But at the end they leave with the best memories." Katerina Gorelik
