These kids are around 8 years old, and quite able to draw on the Gospel themes we have been sharing with them. Very vivid imaginations, I say.

EYE opening @UoB

The end of year exhibition (EYE) of the uni had some interesting art. Some good pieces eg lighted ceramic boxes, round paper disc joined together to form a sculpture and a couple of interesting installations. Some of the paintings were quite good, especially those done by the diploma of visual arts students, they were as good as the Bachelor students I thought. The honours students' artwork were more impressive too. I don't understand the graphic design sections, so did not enjoy them as much.

Mark Fox @ Space22

Mark’s paintings of rock are incredible, I would get bored looking at rocks, but he can paint each piece of rock as it was distinct from another and the details! Pretty but all the same boring rocks!
