Vanity of Small Differences

Grayson Perry, Vanity of Small Differences, (detail)

Happy 2013!

Here is information about an exhibition by Grayson Perry that I saw last year at Victoria Miro gallery:

Vanity of Small Differences donated to the nation

Six tapestries – two for each stratum of society – summed us all up in Perry’s contemporary rendering of Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress.

Here are some images from Victoria Miro gallery.

Plus my own pics on Flickr.

if you can access the channel 4, you can watch Perry doing the research for this amazing piece of work.

Enjoy!

May Ayres – exhibition


 

i visited this exhibition by a friend of mine, May Ayres, who is a very talented sculptor, especially working with ceramics on a human scale by carefully firing pieces and reassembling them after firing. The exhibition represents seven years’ work, and is on view in the belfry of a local church. The decayed setting and ceramic sculptures complement each other well. I wish May ‘s work was in a museum or gallery for more people to see.
