Kas Williams at Mottisfont Open 2018

This book sculpture by Kas Williams caught my eye a few weeks ago on a visit to Mottisfont Open Exhibition 2018 (I'm a bit behind with this post - the exhibtion has finished now). 

'My work with paper is a question into the definition of a book, an exploration into their potential as sculptural objects and the tactile transformation that brings. It is a life after reading.' Kas Williams

Michael Ayrton - Minotaur Waking






















It so happens that there is a bronze minotaur by Michael Ayrton (1972) on show at Southampton City Art Gallery at the moment. Hot footed it in to visit it last week. It's lovely and I really wanted to touch it - it looks so tactile.

Apparently, the minotaur was a regular theme in Ayrton's work so I think I need to look him up.
