‘Inspirational Characters - Meryl Smith’
I recently treated myself to a gorgeous new book: ‘The Selby is in Your Place’, containing a selection of photography exploring interesting homes.
Meryl Smith is one of the artists explored in the book, and the images taken in her house have really inspired me. I love her strange, artistic creations; the mummy babies and the sad grey hound, and aspire to build a collection of oddities like hers. Another interesting piece created by Smith is her ‘Teabag tshirt’; a tshirt which has been transformed into exactly what it sounds; a giant tea bag.
I currently have no flipping idea what I want to do with my life, but know that creating oddities, either photographically, artistically or conceptually, and collecting utter crap is going to feature heavily.
