This is first of a week of emails focusing on my favorites from the Great Northern contemporary craft fair.
The first is Caroline Kirton and her wonderful pieces of art that focus on teenagers. I cant explain it as beautifully as it is written on her website so here is a quote.
“My work has developed into snap shots of how I view teenage life, by observing my daughters and their friends. It is an observation of my relationship with my daughters as they progress through their teenage years, and considers how this relationship is always evolving. My work is also concerned with the issues of control and how young people often feel they have no real control over their lives because of parental and official boundaries. In addition I am trying to come to terms with the issues associated with letting go, as I try to rationalise my own thoughts and feelings, of having to allow my children to grow up and become independent people in their own right.”
Check out the titles for each piece, its genius.
