I could stand it no longer.........the not making anything that is.........so even though my studio is still full of stuff (that's wood flooring in 7/8foot long boxes)............. I climbed and clambered over the boxes, moved crates and doors and furniture and pulled some bits and pieces out into the kitchen
and made this journal page using a couple of postcards I bought at the Grayson Perry exhibition at The British Museum recently.....it's not the best page ever but at least I got to play a little!
The exhibition was fascinating and the one phrase that has stayed with me and danced around inside my head ever since is this one
HOLD YOUR BELIEFS LIGHTLY
which I take to mean...... believe in what you believe but be prepared to accept that others believe different things and sometimes to be persuaded to change your mind......
I find it a very thought provoking statement.
this slightly risque chap is a tomb guardian!
I used the pipette thingy inside a bottle of ink to write my words.......they came out a bit blobby but I quite like that!
The final piece in the exhibition was this FANTASTIC cast iron ship......
...it was huge and FABULOUS!
I knew very little about Grayson Perry before this exhibition......other than that he is the artist who dresses up as a woman....... but now I'm a FAN!
If you want to read more about the exhibition I thought THIS LINK was good and has a couple more pics of pieces from it.
