As I am incurably curious I have just been to see this fantastic exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London. It was really interesting to see Japanese text used as a mark making tool in drawing and painting. I definitely need to brush up on my hiragana and katakana.
This is a model I made inspired by the garden at Uppark House, a National Trust property. I have used a planting diagram from their garden as a backdrop to the scene. They have one of the 2 great doll’s houses from the Eighteenth century housed there, hence the play on scale with the doll’s house wellington boots.

Maquette playing around with 3D form based on the theme of a fairy tale house and researching the meaning of houses in folk tales. I plan to paper cut each cube.
More fun. 😊

We love this wooden slide that is slotted into a combined staircase and bookshelf of a house in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea,

"For thousands of years we used paper to write, paint and communicate our thoughts, dreams and desires. Paper-cutting is a unique art form, Chinese women use this graceful and intricate media to record the joy and surprises of their lives."- Yu Fordy Fu, paper artist, from ‘World Pop Up Art’, published by Artcenter IDA
