What an exuberant Summer Exhibition this year, curated by Grayson Perry! It is full of humour and politics and there was lots to enjoy and admire but with only one piece this year that truly moved me. Have a look through the gallery.
The piece that I looked at for ages and found most moving was a collection of carved Buttermilk prison issue soaps called Prison by Lee Cutter, just a small selection of detail for you here.

It’s well worth a visit and you aren’t far away…. It’s fun but doesn’t touch the heart as other exhibitions have done – apart from the soaps, so simple and powerful. 🙂

Yes, I looked at them for ages , along with a boy of about 13 who was with his school. He clearly found them a draw as I did and was sketching various soaps in great detail. 🙂
