This Week's Discoveries
A selection of wonderful things we've found and have been inspired by this week...
Caroline Walls is an Australian artist working across a number of media, including painting, drawing, soft sculpture, and printmaking. We are particularly fond of Another Thought, a series of fifteen paintings exploring the female body, the forms and the construction of self and identity, portrayed in a semi-abstract way.
Perhaps You Can't Even Begin To Imagine...
Rolina E. Blok has curated a show of a antithetic group of London artists, challenging the idea of imagination. The imagination has played a central role in human cognitive activity, in much of western thought, from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. [..] During the Romanticism, it was attributed enormous powers, and was seen as underlying all forms of creativity. [..] The central aims of the exhibition is to explore some of the different conceptions of imagination that can be found in western philosophical thought and to introduce and elucidate some of the philosophical issues that arise concerning imagination and creativity.
