During CQ winter school on rust marks with Alice Fox, we were having a discussion about Cloth and Memory exhibition, how interesting it was. People had different favourites and many of us ( myself included) found that what stuck in our minds after a year was not necessarily what grabbed us at the time. I was also looking around Saltaire this time with fresh eyes , seeing some of the areas that inspired Alice, like the broken yellow lines on the cobbles. I got some strange looks taking this photo from the gangs of schoolboys that were hanging around the station!
Alice Fox ' Gifts From the Pavement'
David Hockney ipad drawings' 25 Trees and other pictures' Besides the 3 huge photographs showing these trees in different seasons, finding beauty in the mundane ( it included a bus shelter!) there was a projection room showing the latest drawings done on iphone or ipad which he sends regularly to the gallery. Lots of vases of flowers ( glass works particularly well using this medium) and other quick sketches, so lively. 'The Bigger Picture' at the RA a couple of years ago remains for me one of the most memorable exhibitions of recent years.
