Elisa Marzano II

This project brought me such joy, at first because it was presented with illustrations first I thought Elisa was working in collage or onto photographs. However, this was a project decorating the glass of a greenhouse and it is really charming to see the illustrations layered between the internal and external space.

JFK Turner

 JFK Turner's collections of tiny paintings remind me of the scales on a moth or butterfly wing, they are delicious fragments.  His work is on exhibition at Edinburgh's & Gallery 6 April - 1 May 2019.

"My work is concerned with the unnoticed ephemeral elements of everyday life, found objects, marks, stains and the natural effect of time. The objects I collect from the streets form the basis of my work. The paintings are not abstract - they are based on something from the real world. Anything could be subject matter - A rubber band, a screwed up piece of paper, a flap in a cardboard box. These are non-objects - just the remnants of life." JFK Turner

Beatrice Alemagna VI

Beatrice Alemanga's illustrations for  'Harold Snipperpot's Best Disaster Ever' are a delicious, rich, chaotic soup of laughs. It is the story of a very upright Parisian family who live in an impeccable palace  Harold is about to be 7 and has never had a Birthday Party, parents relent and call up Mr Ponzio, the local problem solver . . .

Sandra Rivola I

A thoughtful silent book by Sandra Rivola, which I interpret as being about the beasts of loneliness, but maybe you have a different story to tell from these images? That is the beauty of a silent book, the many stories, and interpretations it generates.
