  • The residents at Somerset House Studios - a “new experimental workspace in the centre of London connecting artists, makers and thinkers with audiences. The Studios are a platform for the development of new creative projects and collaboration, promoting work that pushes bold ideas, engaged with urgent issues and pioneers new technologies” togetherness and community causes creativity @somersethouse @somersethousestudios #creative #nurture #artist #artistinresidence #london #somersethouse
  • Let’s get to know women artists in history as so many are absent from so called the History of Art - the artist here is not named in the title - simply L’artiste dans son atelier - but let’s take a moment to imagine who she was, her life and what she painted. Note the magnificant chinoiserie vase, containing some incredible paint brushes. Follow Jennifer Highie’s Instagram for inspiration.

  • Extraordinary work by Elizabeth Eade @hixartgallery winner of this year’s HIX award. Die  Liste documents the deaths of 33,305 people who have died trying to access Europe. Each delicate handwritten line tells a story of hope, adventure and ultimately, tragedy.

  • Adam and Eve, 2013, by Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) - I had the immense pleasure to enjoy this work @new_art_centre accompanied by soft Autumn sunshine and gentle birdsong. The work forms part of the current exhibition The Most Real Thing: contemporary textiles and sculpture at Roche Court, Wiltshire, running until 4th November.  Shonibare explores issues of race and class through multiple disciplines: painting, sculpture, photography and film. Shonibare questions the meaning of cultural and national definitions. The fibreglass mannequins are clothed I Shonibares trademark material of Dutch waxed printed cotton textile.  #sculpture #yinkashonibare #dutchwaxprintedcotton @shonibarestudio
