That is, that schizophrenia, ‘stops you editing reality, everything you see could have an important meaning’. Perceptions can be distorted, and it is […]

Close and Far: Russian Photography Now at Calvert 22

Close and Far. Russian Photography Now Calvert 22 Gallery Until 17 August I have to look again at the date of Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky’s photographs.

About Time at Maddox Arts

About Time Maddox Arts 4 April to 31 May 2014 The pressures of modern-day life loom large.

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd at Sadie Coles HQ

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd Sadie Coles HQ 11 March to 26 April 2014 Marvin Gaye Chetwynd’s latest offering at Sadie Coles HQ subverts the traditional role of the white cube. No pristine space, with works neatly framed at equal intervals on a crisp white wall. No. Instead, paper print outs, all of different scales, flood the […]
