I'm making an artist's book, called How To Spot A Russian Bomber for this exhibition. (I'm also meant to be writing an exhibition review for this Thursday but will only finish that of course when backed into a corner, like a rat, by the deadline).
Here are some book pages so far. They are digital collages made from scanned and printed images.

Whilst in England I got to see Cornelia Parker's new show at the newly refurbished Whitworth Gallery in Manchester. I was so pleased I saw this show, Cornelia Parker being one of my favourite artists. I love the way she looks at the world and wasn't disappointed with the work in this show which included some of her most well-known pieces and also some new works. The Gallery was packed as well which was great to see and as well as this exhibition, the Whitworth also had a small show of Sarah Lucas's work and prints by Thomas Schuette. Now I wasn't too gone on the prints, but they did make me itchy to be printing again.

This was a great exhibition to be part of. Great venue, great fellow artists. The install went so smoothly. I wish I had taken more time with my red wall and also checked that the wall was straight. There were a few gaps. The idea was sound though and after a discussion with a fellow artist, it was renamed Red Robben, after Arjen Robben, a superb footballer but alas also a too frequent turf diver. It was lovely at the show to see people standing it front of it and blowing to make the little cards flutter. Here are a few images:-
