Cornelia Parker, 'STOP', 2015
You can purchase this artwork (below) by Cornelia Parker in our shop.
“This sign is based on a photograph I took of a battered parking notice on a 60’s council estate in N1. The signs are ubiquitous in London, displayed on all the estates of the period. Isolated from its context the instruction can refer to anything you want it to. Stop eating, Stop drinking, Stop smoking, Stop thinking, Stop worrying, Stop" - Cornelia Parker, 2015
"The fact it is made in enamel means it has a certain authority commanding you to submit, (or to ignore if that is what you usually do to signs!) The black enamel encroaches on the white word, semi-submerged it suggests the viewer is perhaps leaving it a little too long to respond" - Cornelia Parker, 2015
Cornelia Parker, 'STOP', 2015

House Goddesses by Local Artist, Charlie Russell
“The House Goddess is a handcrafted object that speaks to the ancient part of our inner wisdom, where instinct and love reside. They are modern female mother/sister power objects that help us draw on our own nature, tradition and personal magic in all its forms. I am inspired by the personal shrines we quietly and subconsciously make in our homes; special items, objects and collections that hold memory, connect us to others, represent desire and make us feel safe. House Goddesses are made to live among these things, they celebrate, they remind, they are gifts between loved ones and for ourselves. Objects that represent women have been made for centuries for many different purposes by many different people. The Goddess is original; she has always been with us. She is unearthed, hidden, forgotten, rediscovered, kept alive, reinvented, feared, cherished, enduring and evolving. These House Goddesses are a continuation of the legacy of the Goddess in her many forms and cultures.” - Local artist and creator of House Goddesses, Charlie Russell
