WALALA X PLAY at Now Gallery, Greenwich

I recently visited a very fun art gallery at Now Gallery in Greenwich, featuring WALALA X PLAY – a mirror maze of colours, stripes, polka dots and angles  created by digital print designer Camille Walala, and involves having to walk around, explore and look at the different patterns and colours. I love interactive art exhibits like this, which means we get to participate in such a simple way, and which everyone can enjoy in their own way.

The exhibit is in an interesting Pop Art 3D style, and encourages visitors to look at light, colours, reflections, shapes and playfulness, and is meant to give us a view of the human self, so that as we engage we come away with an experience which is influenced by the art.

If you’re around the area, I’d recommend a visit – it’s free and nice for a quick half hour of fun. The exhibition is on until 24th of September though, so hurry!

 

Cloudy Mirrors

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
Khalil Gibran

I love mixing two mediums, surfaces and colours together, particularly with photography and have been experimenting with this recently, using jewellery, mirrors and beautiful patterns. This is something I did recently, a compact mirror reflecting a cloudy sky, hinting at something philosophical and whimsical. Neither the mirror nor the clouds dominate the picture, and you’re left with something that feels almost like a painting.
