Colourful creations

Hannah Fleetwood asked people from different countries which meals remind them of home, and recreated the dishes in colourful, three-dimensional artworks.

The paper creations include Khao Pad from Thailand, German apple strudel and salmon on toast from Ireland.

Other exhibits include work inspired by the routine of a daily commute, intricate drawings of imaginary insects and screen prints created for a book of poetry.

Inspired by nature

Yuechi Cao has created a striking mural inspired by peat moss. As part of her exhibit, she has also created a fabric out of moss and taken pictures of it with a microscope to highlight its beauty and versatility.

Jet Yung has painted a series of blue and red geometric shapes, inspired by the Herring Boats at Stornoway, and Andrew James Robinson’s abstract paintings create a fantasy world that invites the viewer to interpret the colourful shapes and lines.
