Living Liverpool Exhibition
Our very talented friend Anney took part in this exhibition that Lynds and I went down to on friday night. “Living Liverpool” was a collection of artworks done by locals to celebrate 200 years of establishment in the area. Anney and I have been friends for a few years now, after suffering together while working at Spotlight. Anney, as you can see is so very clever and every new work of hers I see inspires me!
These are the three works she had on show on the night, inspired by the Princess and the Pea, Wizard of Oz and Cinderella. I absolutely LOVE them, but the princess is my favourite! Other works like this:
And this were also on show by other artists. I’m not too sure on the meaning, but the stocking stuffer people scare me! Someone told me the man and the meat represent how Liverpool Hospital feels like a meat market and how they treat you like an animal. Mmm inspiring or what! You can see why I think Anney’s were the best and most positive pieces there!
This is Anney (left) and her sister Mechelle, who is also extremely talented and has a show coming up at Kinokuniya sometime soon! They dressed in these amazing floral 80′s prom dresses on the night and had so many people come up and comment on their outfits.
And Mechelle had this amazing petticoat underneath her dress! I have a bit of a soft spot for petticoats too, so this made my night! All in all the artworks were really interesting and it’s pretty clear that no matter what area you live in, there are always so many talented people around you. Kx
