Mud On the Road

Hello world - Happy New Year. Don’t cycle too close to the kerb.

Twiggy Limbs

Posted by Deborah Courtnell


     On the top floor of the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, tucked away in a tiny room, I saw an artwork so marvellous and fantastical, so utterly delightful and imaginative I couldn't help but stop and stare and wonder and marvel and smile.

     These fantastical bounding horses (see pictures below) with their feathers and foils and twiggy limbs and heads and bodies at full stretch, are entirely made by children, specifically Year 7 pupils, aged 11- 12 from Holland Park School.

     A simple notice on the wall, says that that: Head of Art at Holland Park School, Nitya Paul, entered this group project to the 2012 Saatchi Gallery/Sunday  Telegraph Art Prize for Schools. Year 7 Pupils, aged 11-12 Mixed Media. The Art Prize is sponsored by Deutsche Bank.

     My pictures cannot do it justice: I think it’s worth visiting the Saatchi Gallery, entrance is free,  just to see this work alone. Oh and  the 20:50 installation by Richard Wilson pictured in a previous post.
