Hand over book (touching you) // Evelyn Whorrall-Campbell

“I am an artist who loves hands. What a wonder! They can do so many things: touching, stroking, grabbing, tickling, pinching, slapping, holding. I am an artist who also loves books. Now think of all the things they can hold. Even though the pages are […]

RE+RE // Levin Pfeufer

 

“My story is of continued life/line mark-making through drawing, painting, graphic design, photography, collage, music collectives, and film. Pushing lines and colour, sound, motion, scrawls of language, learning to unlearn. I am interested in how visual interpretation manifests out of built/decayed form, lines chasing through narrows of tower blocks, urban labyrinth, the movement of organic through inorganic spaces. Scrawl-capture as a vehicle to process immediate visceral emotions, absurdity, the spaces on the edges of reason. RE+RE.”

Stoneware // Yui Kajita

Stoneware // Yui Kajita

The photographs show stoneware pieces, coloured with a combination of glazes, copper oxide, manganese carbonate, and fragments of glass. These objects are made by hand, but they are also like found objects. As Kajita explores the material expressions of clay and the unexpected surfaces that arise from the fusion of vitreous glazes and powdered chemicals, she interweaves the lines and textures found in nature with artificial elements. These objects embody the chance encounters with things hidden among driftwood: forgotten objects that retain the traces of their individual histories, that are still functional but strange.

 

 

YUI KAJITA is a final year PhD student of English at Newnham College, Cambridge. She likes making things, whether it’s with drawing ink and dip pen, paint, clay, or natural objects.

Battle of the Small Green Cactus // Niko Kristic

The Battle of the Small Green Cactus is an illustration executed using 0.05mm fineliners on an A2 surface. It depicts the perennial conflict waged amongst the terminally brainless race of yanshes over a once-miniscule cactus, which, nourished by the blood of the fallen, now towers […]
