Michelle Forsyth

Michelle Forsyth has such diversity within her work it was really difficult to decide which images to share with you.  Her website is a treasure trove of images of her work so I urge you to go and have a good look at her work.

Her statement reads:

My work resides in a place between being intimately beautiful yet conceptually very dark.

Egidija Ciricaite

I have just come to the end of my second year on the Embroidery degree at MMU so will have more time over the next few months to talk about my own work and the wonderful artists who have been ( and will be) influencing me.  I have a passion for book arts and recently found this wonderful artist working in ceramics but with a love of books  (website)!  

Egidija describes this work 

Damnatio memoriae is the Latin phrase literally meaning "condemnation of memory" in the sense of a judgment that a person must not be remembered. It was a form of dishonor that could be passed by the Roman Senate upon those, who brought discredit to the Roman State. The result is to erase someone from history.
