From the Postcards series by Ruth Claxton, 2004

Multi-media artist Ruth Claxton has the honour to present her works to her fellow Birminghamians in two shows - both opening this Wednesday.

Her recycled and grotesquely disfigured porcelain figurines from the Lands End series are being shown by Ikon Gallery (April 2 - May 18, 2008), while Interventions - a series of new altered postcard pieces - are being exhibited by the Barber Institue of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham (April 2 - July 6, 2008).
