Paper at Saatchi

October 3, 2013


Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed this exhibition. It’s a curious mix of works on paper and works made out of paper. The latter was far more interesting.

December 3, 2010


The five artists, exhibiting in Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography at the V&A museum, have not chosen straightforward careers for themselves.
