A ballerina, glomesh and a pair of scissors!
Naomi Zouwer joins GOST
We are pleased to announce Naomi Zouwer is joining GOST with her colourful small craft objects ready to adorn the walls of your home or favourite work space. From a ballerina to glomesh and a pair of scissors, there will be a little something nostalgic for everyone.
Curator Grace Blakeley-Carroll explains, " ... The same objects that belong to Zouwer and her family - most of which are small enough to fit in the palm of a hand - are depicted in different ways in different media, highlighting her versatility as an artist ...".
