There were a few new works on display in the First Cut exhibition at Manchester City Art Gallery when we visited it for the second time last Sunday.
I particularly liked this paper “ice sculpture” by Andy Singleton that was hanging from the ceiling in the Atrium between the old and new parts of the gallery.
According to the gallery’s website, the sculpture, 3.5m high and made from hand cut, scored and folded paper, was "inspired by flowing ice forms such as icicles and frozen waterfalls".
It brought back memories of the last couple of winters up here in Lancashire when we had huge icicles dangling from the gutters. Not much chance of them this Christmas – we’re more likely to drown in the never ending downpours we’ve been having.
