Feast Wagons in Preston

Wow, what a fantastic array of objects at Oxheys Mill Studios in Preston.

The show, which is the culmination of a collaboration between Susan Walsh and Lubaina Himid is fully interactive, with the actually audience encouraged to touch and use the vehicles. Exquisite painting paired with utilitarian sculpture invites viewers to get up close with the vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Special thanks to Denise Swanson for a warm welcome and a grand tour of the artist studios, it was lovely to see you and Evelyn again.


Ideas on a Beer Mat

Found this beer mat of an artwork by Susan Walsh from an exhibition at The Tetley in Yorkshire.

The image reminds me of some of the concepts that Marc described when portraying the feelings of being a home carer. Often alone in their struggle and pulling a heavy load.
