Janina McQuoid is presenting a new series of “light box” sculptures, that find their place within the domestic environment and in the neighbourhood’s wood shops

Part One 1 I met a wonderful girl today named Good Morning. She’s so young she looks just like new. I saw a picture of her on the Internet getting kissed on the cheek by a friend of mine. I wrote her to see if I might get the opportunity to do that too. Good
