When I was in Seville in May 2012 I visited a complex of buildings that were built for an internation exposition in 1929. It was a fascinating space with interesting architecture but the part that really caught my eye were the tiled pavilions decorated with motifs that represented different districts in Spain. I really liked the way the faces were painted and would like to incorporate the style into my own work.
I saw similar faces carved into tombs amongst the ruins at Aphrodisias in Turkey
Out on the west coast of Ireland I discovered these gorgeous stained glass windows created by the Irish glass artist, Harry Clarke. They are so simply drawn but so expressive and I love the rich colours of the glass.
