I recently travelled to England and France and saw some fabulous art including Michael Raedecker at the Camden Arts Centre (where I took pottery classes when I was 10 years old) who “uses a unique combination of thread and paint to create his atmospheric paintings.”

In Paris, I was particularly captivated by Alexander Calder’s wire portraits and sculptures at the Pompidou Centre. Watch video from minute 3:15 to 5:00 to get a sense of his use of line and shadow. (NB. the sound in the video is erratic so you may just want to watch on mute).

I also discovered a wonderful sculptor: Nicolas Lavarenne
