The Artist Project 2013

This past Sunday, I took a much needed break away from the studio and stopped by to check out this year's installment of The Artist Project, on at the Better Living Centre.
As soon as I arrived, I found myself power walking through the dazed crowd to get a look at some of the fresh new works on offer.
I always enjoy going to these types of shows, seeing the work of my friends, meeting some new faces and getting inspired by new artists in the untapped emerging artist section.

A couple of booths that really stood out to me include the work of Anouk Desloges who pierces plexiglass, using it as a surface to create beautiful line-based embroideries, as well as the work of Katie Kehoe who uses drawing and repeating of the word 'And' to build up a series of patterns and textures on both paper and canvas.
I was also really pleased to see that Steven Tippin has continued to make his stunning photograms, which involve directly applying his glass works on photo paper and exposing them to capture the depth and dimension of the works as light refracts through each piece. Below is a selection of images I took from the show, I hope you enjoy!
