In another blog post for The Guardian Student Bloggers, I wrote about my experience of organising ‘Colour Me Political’, a one-day student art project offering Exeter university students a creative medium to express their thoughts on the new government.
Ahead of the general election, I wrote a piece on the media’s treatment of Ed Milliband’s imperfections, placing it in the context of the art world, with comparisons with several famous paintings depicting physical ‘imperfections’.
The article actually inspired my new blog, picturepolitics.wordpress.com, which looks at the relationship between art and politics. It also features some of my own art work. Check it out!
Another column for The W Review, this piece focuses on my recent trip to Paris (courtesy of ELLE). I cover the Musée d’Orsay, Degas and the rise of ballet chic.
A little piece I did examining the position of the corset within modern society. I particularly enjoyed incorporating an analysis of Manet’s painting ‘Nana’ into the article.
