You can download these audio recordings and play them back as a podcast, though I do recommend looking at the pictures of the art which is being discussed. You can click on each image to enlarge it. These recordings were made during one Tuesday evening of the Artists’ Network Alpujarra spring show, where members have been conducting relaxed art critiques of selected pieces, along with gallery visitors. These podcasts are introduced and recorded by me, Emma Plunkett. Artists present include Lisa Prudon, Sylvia Kruidenier and guest artist Mark Watson. Have a listen to hear some highly personal stories and insights about the work.

T-Pot Sculptures by Sylvia Kruidenier
Sylvia puts an image of her art through an internet image search to find a similar piece, which she then sculpts and puts the resulting piece through another image search, sculpts the result and repeats this process indefinitely. She adds them each to a t-pot lid.
