After posting images from the Anni Albers exhibition, Instagram correctly predicted that I wanted to see a lot more artists working with textiles and led me to the door of Vanessa Barragao.
Isn’t this great? I’d love to see (and touch) this work in person. Check out her website here and also her profile @vanessabarragao_work
Alfred Hitchcock grew up in Leytonstone (his father’s former grocery shop is apparently painted with a mural of The Birds now), and so the local Tube station has an underpass filled with these witty and colourful mosaics is his films.
How many can you spot? If you’re like me and only got the famous ones, there are plaques underneath each piece telling you the names.
All photos Dec 2018.
Already looking forward to a new year of art and exhibitions: Bonnard, the last of Anni Albers at the Tate, Dior at the V&A and this Harold Gilman show that moves from the Djangoly gallery to Pallant House. Look at that colour, pattern and texture.

Cherubs on the ceiling. Photos from the fabulous @glory.of.disrepair feed that is based in Germany. This reminded me of my visit to Mannheim last year.
