up and beyond

This week I went to Up and Beyond - Brighton University's graduate show. The first thing to catch my eye was Helena Beer's work in the foyer. I'm a sucker for monochrome so her beautifully intricate pieces were right up my street. On the other hand I love it when artists have a great eye for colour and Zoe Landry's display of cardboard houses and prints presented on tree trunks was one of the most delightful of the show.

My other favourite work in the show was from fine art painter Hannah Wilkinson whose collection of graphite, charcoal and watercolour works on paper were mysterious and mesmerising.

And a couple of other things that caught my eye were Emma Brant's narrative jewellery inspired by her grandmother's memoirs....
