It had been long overdue since I blogged about an exhibition I’ve seen, so I decided to pay a little visit to the National Design Museum, which happens to be the Hub, conveniently located about half an hour away from me. The exhibition was by called ‘The Curious World of Becky Adams’, and curious it was as I looked through Becky’s work, who creates beautiful pieces which can only be described as a glorious marriage between textile and paper.
I have long since been fascinated with paper ephemera and using this in relationship to materials which are designed to be much more long-standing, such as a fabric and textiles. Becky captured this wonderfully in her exhibition, which clever and gorgeous pieces, as well as some genuinely witty moments, often rare in the pretension of the art world today.
Text is something I feel works effortlessly with vintage visuals and free machinery – something which I have been having a little dabble in myself, so hopefully there will be some pictures up of my (feeble in comparison) attempts! But in the meanwhile, here are some of my absolute favourite pieces from Becky’s gorgeous exhibition…
If you’re inspired to go and take a look, the show runs until 25th August 2013 at The National Centre for Craft and Design (The Hub) in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. You won’t be disappointed!
