United Visual Artists at the Barbican

United Visual Artists at the Barbican

United Visual Artists: Momentum Barbican Centre 13 February to 1 June 2014 My first regret was wearing noisy shoes. With less grace (and definitely less subtlety) than I had hoped, I slowly traced the wall of the Curve round, following the light pendulums. There was a hazy darkness, punctuated by darker shadows and by the […]

Garry Kennard at GV Art

Garry Kennard GV Art 11-26 January 2013 It was a few weeks ago that I received a book in the post, Garry Kennard’s ‘Essays and Images’. Locked inside the pages were stories of, amongst others, climbing expeditions and past romantic liaisons. Memories and details of dreams served to furnish ideas of how the brain functions, […]

Wilhelm Sasnal at the Whitechapel

Wilhelm Sasnal Whitechapel Gallery 14 October 2011 to 1 January 2012 I had flicked through an abstract art book before and stumbled across Wilhelm Sasnal. That was the area I had him pegged under. Abstract art. Minimal. The one painting I had seen was a meld of off whites, pale pinks and purples, built up […]

Justin Mortimer at Haunch of Venison

Justin Mortimer: Resort Haunch of Venison 12 October to 24 November 2012 I was excited to see Justin Mortimer’s paintings, I had only ever been accustomed to little cut outs of his paintings I used to stick in my studio diary for inspiration. And, then, it was out of a purely aesthetic appreciation. The love […]

Bharti Kher at Parasol Unit

Bharti Kher Parasol Unit 14 September to 11 November 2012 As first impressions go, I think bewildered is a term that would be apt for my initial encounter with Bharti Kher’s work. But then, when your first view is of a headless, crouching figure atop a tree stump, holding an animal skull in one hand […]

Grayson Perry at Victoria Miro

Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences Victoria Miro 7 June to 11 August 2012 Cycling the seven miles to Old Street wasn’t the best idea I’d ever had, especially on encountering the stairs that led up to Grayson Perry’s newest works. Before even taking the time to look around I had collapsed on a […]

Bauhaus at the Barbican

Bauhaus – Art As Life Barbican Centre 3 May to 12 August 2012 There is just so much to see here. I had a bit of a panic as I neared the end about how I would manage to capture all the different elements of the exhibition in a short review. I can’t recall ever […]

Zoe Leonard at Camden Arts Centre

Zoe Leonard: Observation Point Camden Arts Centre 31 March to 24 June 2012 I don’t think I was meant to, but I headed straight into Gallery Three. I couldn’t resist, the walls leading up to it were painted black. Intrigue disrupted the conventional gallery route and took me in. The black walls led me into […]

Vicken Parsons at Alan Cristea

Vicken Parsons: Here Alan Cristea Gallery 23 February to 24 March 2012 I already felt on edge walking around Old Bond Street, my scruffy demeanour not in keeping with the polished doormen guarding the premises of Chanel and Alexander McQueen. This feeling intensified. If there’s one thing I hate about smaller galleries it is that […]

Catherine Yass at Alison Jacques

Catherine Yass: Lighthouse Alison Jacques Gallery 13 January to 17 February 2012 It takes you in. Onto the surface of the water, the camera bobbing up and down in capturing the vast expanse of its surface. The horizon line falters and changes with this movement. You hear the wind, the sound of this empty space. […]
