the pink and the black at Art in Action

Black plates with pink cakes Here’s a collaboration: my plates, a visitor’s pink meringues, at Art in Action last week.

The plates are from the stack, all are inscribed with lines from Dylan Thomas’s In my sullen craft or art. The stack is both a single art-object, to be admired, and a lot of plates that you have to handle to read the poem. And dish-washable. I like this contradiction, this blurring of categories, although it makes the plates very hard to price. There’s capitalism for you.

I had the most interesting conversations at the show: I was filled with hope and glee – fantastic.
