Grace Souky: Domestic Collectables

SEEN visited the recent Clerkenwell Design Week, which was both eye-opening and uplifting. Not just the big dramatic installations but also the smaller independent designers who have made the area their home.

The beautiful Domestic Collectables by Grace Souky caught SEEN’s magpie eye as soon as she saw them. Exquisitely designed and made, Grace’s bowls, utensils and containers in particular stood out; sleek and calm in their perfection, their quiet minimalism and bold colours making them thoughtful additions to any style of home. The combination of materials, the copper and wood especially, are stunning.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
