Artist statement "Because of my infautation with technology and electronic products, my communication with people in the real world and with nature has suffered. So I decided to recycle the electronic waste and peach pits around me to create a group of jewellery which express how my life connects with contemporary electronics. I have called my works The Contemporary Seeds." - Yang Zhang

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
