NIGHT 134 – THE STORY OF TAJ AL-MULUK KHARAN AND PRINCESS DUNYA

This can be read two ways, in both German and English

Seen at my Carpet Pages II: Roots show last year

My Cloud Carpet painting is in the background and I love carpets because they are one of the best examples of how multiple colours can live together in perfect harmony and in fact create breathtaking beauty equalling more than the sum of their parts.

NIGHT 133 – THE STORY OF TAJ AL-MULUK KHARAN AND PRINCESS DUNYA

Anyone remember these toys? Viewmasters and stereoscopes. I loved Viewmasters as a child (small collection) and anything to do with the precursors to moving image and film. I studied 16mm film at the Slade as well as oil painting, and I trace my early interest to these toys.

NIGHT 132 – THE STORY OF TAJ AL-MULUK KHARAN AND PRINCESS DUNYA

Lanterns and tea bricks at Hutong restaurant at the Shard London. If my husband and I go out anywhere, there is usually an interior design inspiration reason too! They also had a moon gate as we do in our opium bed.

Great food also – the 鍋鎉豆腐 golden jade tofu with Chinese leek & coriander sauce was divine. It’s northern Chinese cuisine which I’m not used to so great to try something new.

NIGHT 126 – THE STORY OF ‘AZIZ AND ‘AZIZA

My favourite room at Pollock’s Toy Museum London – the room filled with toy theatres. As a kid I was always making my own toy theatres – without puppets though as I was more interested in the scenery and the mechanics of changing scenes! Happy to share these with my child now. Toys are one of the few things the Victorians got right. Although debatable as toys were designed to keep kids occupied so adults didn’t have to entertain them (out of sight out of mind). However, I love the magic worlds within worlds these beautiful toy theatres contain; I am an adult that enjoys playing with toys together with kids still

NIGHT 125 – THE STORY OF ‘AZIZ AND ‘AZIZA

Contemporary art afternoon tea inspired by Anthony Gormley in the Mirror Room at the Rosewood Hotel London

The process of decay of an apple is shown in terms of initial crisp textures becoming more mushy, eventually becoming compôte. Inspired by Anthony Gormley’s One Apple. And Matrix II, a ghost environment we all accept as our primary habitat and a critical dialogue with perception.

Also, I’m always happy to have blue tea – this one is from New Zealand.
