Dinosaur Raah!

IMG_6736Feets and I were lucky enough to intrude on the final stages of putting together Dinosaur Raah!, the new 'recycled' exhibition for children in the Stables Gallery at Orleans House, imagined and created by Michelle Reader and assisted by a host of school children. We went straight for the touchy-feely mats and Feets lay gazing into the teeth of a hungry creature while chewing on a fish of her own.

I always find Michelle's work refreshing, and her approach to everyday materials inspires my own. This exhibition is certainly another feast, I think my favourite part being what she managed to do with rubber gloves!
