Richard Tuttle

This textile installation is in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern (London, UK).  The colours in the photos are really saturated, but the actual piece is not quite as bright. Specially without the sunshine!  The fabrics were made and dyed in India - where the colours must look wonderful. There is an exhibition of his other varied works at The Whitechapel Gallery.

I'm afraid I wasn't so fond of a lot of the 'assemblages' but loved the more painterly pieces.

Acrylic Circles and Malevich

Using Golden Liquid Acrylics, I dropped 'blobs' on to a plastic sleeve and left them to dry.  They take about 3 - 4 days to dry out, but you can then peel them off and use them as and where you fancy.  They have a lovely smooth feel to them, but try not to touch them until they are dry otherwise they mark very easily.

Jean-Paul Gaultier (iii)


I felt really inspired to do something with my J-P G photos, (from his exhibition), and have been making small painted sketches.  I used one idea of  'pattern', and played with it in Photoshop.  I cut out some of the picture, which I then felt looked like fabric cut pattern pieces - back to Square One! :)
