Simply put, I didn’t like Emma Davies’ exhibition Morphed (another State of Design show) because I thought it was ugly. The works were apparently inspired by Davies’ recent trip to South Africa and ‘the visual intoxication of busy streets, road-side performances, and the bustling Johannesburg market’. I didn’t sense any of that in the lumpish black ape/humanoid creatures with spindle limbs who peered at you as they perched on timber pedestals and draped on rusty ladders.

If you love the figures based on my best attempt to photograph them, you can read an effusive review of Morphed at Art Blart.
