Iranian-born artist Shirin Neshat Last year I went in search of my American Dream®, and taking a flight from Gatwick (wearing ridic summer clothes for September) my boyfriend Sam and I found ourselves in LA.  It was more about locating an In & Out Burger than finding ourselves, and we went in pursuit of the […]

Close ties: An Interview with Shibari Rope Bondage Model Sophia Mindus

Sophia Mindus’s Instagram feed is a glorious eye-gasm in celebration of the female form. The majority of the posts which you can admire here are of her tied up and sometimes suspended, because she practices the Japanese art of Shibari rope bondage. The simplicity of the shapes her body creates when tied in rope are satisfying on […]

Cold snap: 6 women designers to warm up your winter wardrobe

December is upon us. That means the sunset-orange glory of Autumn is over for another year. Trees which once resembled Beyonce in mustard yellow Roberto Cavalli now look more like the child-catcher in his ragged black tailcoat.

Space Tapestry (2017)

Female Artists: Aleksandra Mir’s Space Tapestry

I admire Mir’s collaborative approach because it provides a whole host of metaphors for what art is capable of doing.
