Su Blackwell and Dorian Gray

I've just discovered the works of the artist Su Blackwell. She works with paper and creates book-cut sculptures that are really enchanting. If you have a moment check out her website where you can see some of these wonderful pieces [link]. Last night I also saw a truly atmospheric production of ' Dorian Gray ' in the tiny basement theatre of the already small Leicester Square Theatre [link] ! I really felt transported to another time by this production, and I was enraptured by the classic story. I guess the two experiences have a similar charm, even if they have quite dark and adult themes, there is a magical simplicity in how they are presented that makes you feel rather like a child. Lots of love tt
