Zara Wood's Mirror Mime at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Recently visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and amongst other things found the illustrator Zara Wood's work interesting. The Brighton based illustrators show is on until the 27th February and is called Mirror Mime. The applied illustrations were the most interesting, particularly on the windows of the concourse and on objects such as cups and saucers, and brooches and boxes. Her simple black and white images seemed at home there rather than the more accepted formats of screen prints, although the screen prints on metallics,  and mirrors had interesting qualities too. All images are courtesy of YSP.
