It’s just a few of the things I know Julie loves, gathered together as a little ‘feel better’ message. Easy to create, but not lacking in the thought department, which is – as everyone knows – what counts.
The idea was very loosely inspired by What Are You Like?, an exhibition I managed to miss (for shame!) at Dulwich Picture Gallery a couple of years ago. In turn, the exhibition was inspired by a Victorian parlour game in which players (or in this case, artists) described themselves by way of their favourite things.
While I know Julie pretty well, I wouldn’t presume to list her definitive favourites on any of the subjects featured in the exhibition pieces. My mosaic is much more vague – just things I know she’s fond of in general. It’s strange how personal committing to favourites can seem, but I think an interesting exercise, and one I’m planning to come back to later on.
In the meantime, these are just a few of my favourites from the What Are you Like? exhibition.
