* With Nurture Studies, Diana Scherer presents an archive of flowers she has grown from seed over a six-month period. Rather than letting the flowers grow in open soil, she has forced each plant to develop within the confines of a vase. Only at the end of the process does she remove the plant’s corset, exposing roots that retain their shape as an evocation of the now absent vase.
* Julie Cockburn takes found photographs and through cutting, embroidering and collaging makes them her own, her work becoming a link between the past and the present. I like the way she puts colours together.
* And last but not least Luke Stephenson. I have written a blogpost about him a while ago. So I was trilled to see his beautiful birds at Unseen! In real they are even more pretty, the colours are so bright and soft at the same time.
