Affordable Art Fair
I wish someone would revamp the Battersea Power Station into something amazing...it has the potential to be something amazing instead of being a derelict building
South of the Thames river is not somewhere we go much in London...I know this is a generalisation but being an out-an-out North of the river girl, I never see the need to venture beyond Waterloo / London Bridge (public transport seems to stop pretty much after Waterloo/London Bridge). But today we went to Battersea Park to attend the Affordable Art Fair (which involved taking a tube to Victoria then a 'proper' train to Battersea...see what I mean about ease of getting to the south of the river?) Anyway back to the fair....things I love and I remember to take a picture of!
I think this is a painting....I like the different colours on each ducks...Definately a Scottish influence
I love this cheeky art called 'Make love not war' where the artist uses plastic soldiers to create the heart shape. A very easy (and cheap) idea to copy
How clever and cute is this! Dressed fashioned using maps. They hit a sweet spot for me by using the maps (secret love of mine)
Cute...Paper cut butterflies, creating the 3-d image
Lunch (apple pie + a mini choc biscuit thingy) was a little random as we got up really late and had 'breakfast' at 12 then after 2 hrs of looking at arts solidly we got delusional, got a print (next post maybe) and head off for a sugar fix.
