Bright facets


I instantly recognized Gemma Smith's bright, faceted artwork from this beautiful space. It's amazing how flat colour and simple, clean lines can have so much dimension and depth. Gazing into her pieces is like peering into an over-sized kaleidoscope.



While I love Gemma's pieces on the wall, she's taken it to a whole new level with this incredible 3D sculpture made from brightly coloured acrylic pieces.




Take this theme off the wall (or out of the gallery) and onto the streets with these technicoloured, hand-stiched pieces by Maranon. Each piece is unique, hand-stitched and made to order. The perfect statement piece to punch up your basic summer whites. Fun!
