City Fragments is an exhibition of hand made glass by Megan Herring which explores an urban landscape that has been reconstructed in the mind; remembered and distorted by memory; created by the imagination.

New Work

I have recently received new work by book artist Hiromi Tango. Hiromi's work is overtly intimate in nature. Her intensely constructed books combine found papers, letters, photographs, images from magazines, packaging and found objects, folded and bound tightly so that the viewer must dig through the binding to glimpse private thoughts and emotions in an almost voyeuristic fashion. Each tiny revelation makes the viewer wish to see more whist at the same time fight feelings that her personal space is being invaded.
