Another piece from the Blue Room was this glorious hanging by El Anatsui, aptly named Change in Fortune, made from his traditional bottle tops stitched together. The whole piece is a beautiful shimmering sweeping stroke on a grand scale.

A more traditional piece was a portrait of the poet Hugo Williams by Humphrey Ocean. It was hung high so the photo unfortunately doesn’t do it credit.Photo by Caroline Banks On a different note is one of Rebecca Salter’s mixed media drawings, Untitled AK17. Photo by Caroline Banks Photo by Caroline Banks
