This is an experimental small canvas, using disassembled watches. The first clock face had a couple of cracks in it and I managed to chip away the surface to reveal a copper surface. I love all the teeny tiny screws and other bits.
This week I went to the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition, which I thought was fabulous this year. Over a thousand exhibits - this is such a amazing show for inspiration with so many diverse artworks. Here are some of my favourites.
This is fun - OK going up, but felt quite precarious coming down!
Fabulous composite photograph, the detail is amazing.
I first saw this artist's 3D work at last year's exhibition - stunning.
I am drawn to the vibrant colours and detail, this is a large canvas.
And finally an awe-inspiring work by Tom Phillips. In 1966 he wanted to find an old book for threepence and alter every page with various techniques to create an entirely new work. The book he chanced upon was A Human Document (1892) by W H Mallock.
He decided to call his treatment A Humument, a contraction of the original title. The first reworking was printed privately in 1973. Almost 50 years later he continues to revise and develop it.
I fell in love with this work, there are over 100 pages showing in the exhibition.

The Summer Exhibition is on until 16 August - go if you can.
