    I am delighted to be exhibiting at this Central London art fair in July - more details will surely follow but put it in your diaries.

    The Bloomsbury Art Fair is a spectacular three-day art fair organised in conjunction with the Helium Foundation, one of London’s leading contemporary art dealerships, and Outer Temple Chambers on 13-16 July 2011.

    Forty artists and galleries will exhibit a fascinating array of work in the stunning surroundings of Goodenough College, in the private Mecklenburgh Square & Gardens in Bloomsbury.

    Artwork will include that of stree t artists and contemporary legends such as Damien Hirst, Banksy, and Nick Walker to photographers and mouth painters, as well as classical artists and sculptors working in figurative, wildlife and abstract forms.

    The Bloomsbury Art Fair is a not-for-profit enterprise and is dedicated solely to selling art and raising funds for four fantastic charities. Our chosen charities support people who have suffered from a catastrophic, life-changing injury and include the Parachute Regiment Charity, the Spinal Injuries Association, the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust and ‘Motivation’ - a charity providing wheelchairs to the developing world.

  • Shaun McDowell: New Paintings at Hannah Barry Gallery

    Tonight I am heading down to Hannah Barry's gallery in Peckham to take in the riot of colour that is Shaun McDowell's latest work. At first glance, his marks appear unbridled and chaotic, but soon the delicate balance and expert control become apparent. Powerful stuff.

    Exhibition runs until April 20th. Wed-Sat 11-5pm.

  • British Art Show 7 at the Hayward Gallery

    I know I have said it before but you MUST get down to this showcase of contemporary talent on the South Bank to see Charles Avery's beautiful works and take in as many moments as you can of Christian Marclay's visionary and epic masterpiece, The Clock.

    No time to waste....

  • Mark Hayward at the open

    Mark Hayward at the open

    I have very happily just taken delivery of several works by artist Mark Hayward, which will be on show Monday 7th February, 6-9pm.

    The above work, entitled Little Bird, is a screenprint on handmade paper, from an edition of 50. It measures 87 x 60 cm unframed. More details and images of Mark's work will be on the site soon.

  • Jane Ward: SOLO SHOW AT BEARSPACE

    Go along to Bearspace in Deptford to see Jane's powerful work in a solo exhibition.

    Composed of multilayered digital images which are printed onto canvas and then manipulated, scraped away or reworked, Jane's unique pieces are as thought-provoking as they are intricate, evoking themes of loss, flux and confusion as the artist manipulates scale and perspective.

    Featuring both current and brand new works, the show will run from Jan 29 - Feb 26 2011.

  • Date for next open: Monday 7th February 2011

    Happy New Year. The next open evening when you can come and browse and discuss the art will be Monday 7th February, 6 - 8.30pm. Hope to see you there!

  • Merry Christmas

    and very best wishes for 2011 to you all.

  • Eemyun Kang - Lake Dweller

    Eemyun Kang - Lake Dweller

    In a week that's all shades of grey, here's a splash of colour by the supremely talented Eemyun Kang, who I visited in her studio recently. This Korean-born painter is sure to have a very successful career. This certainly packs a punch, it's 205 x 135 cm...perfect for a big white wall!

  • First Open - Monday 13th December

    Finally we have a date for the first Open Evening, when you can come and browse the art, have a drink and a chat about what you are after. Amongst the works on show will be two limited edition prints by Jane Ward, as well as many of the works featured on the site. If there is anything in particular you are wanting to see, please get in touch by email in advance.

    Open Evening Monday 13th December 6.30 - 9pm.

    RSVP for more details.

  • Alchemy on film - not just Harry Potter

    Irina highly recommended this magical show of experiments with light, shade, chemicals and photosensitive paper at the V&A. Featuring work by international artists including Susan Derges and Adam Fuss, Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography posesses ethereal, ghostly elements, juxtaposed with aspects of chemical experiments gone right in the case of Pierre Cordier, a pioneer of this art.

    This is a thrilling display, where the surreal meets the symbolic: one which will make you think more deeply about photographic processes. Runs until 20 Feb 2011.

     

  • Just in time

    So they ALL said not to miss Christian Marclay's recent video installation 'The Clock' at White Cube Mason's Yard.

    If - like me - you did, then luckily it'll be featuring in British Art Show 7, a curated showcase of 'the most influential' contemporary art from the last 5 years and displayed across four cities. 39 artists have work on show; some well-known, others less familar. I can hardly wait so I'll soon be off to Nottingham where it has just opened, but for the more patient among you, it goes to the Hayward Gallery in London on February 16th, to Glasgow at the end of May and Plymouth on September 17th 2011.

    Well worth a look just to see Marclay's carefully assembled, seamless collage of filmclips relating to every second of a 24 hour clock, the fragments painstakingly placed to run in real time. Such an epic project will no doubt prove to be as thought-provoking and powerful as has been reported.

    However, The Clock is not the chief reason for my pilgrimage: one of my absolute favourite artists, Charles Avery also has an installation in the show from his ongoing project, 'The Islanders'. If you haven't already heard of him you soon will. Depicting a fictional world has been the focus of his artistic career, through installation, sculpture, paintings. drawings and prints. His work is delicate and humourous, and yet simultaneously deeply profound - boy, can the man use a pencil!

    Well worth penning into your new, 2011 diary.

  • An Orchestra of Strings

    On a dull, wet day last week I visited the Crypt Gallery at St Pancras Church to take in an exhibition curated by artist and curator Teresa Mills. In this dim, cavernous space designed for the dead a show depicting love, loss and their associated emotions involved fits very well. Tucked away in various nooks and crannies each piece strikes a different chord, with flashes of humour amongst some more sombre works.

    Well worth a visit if you're in the area. Entry is free. Runs until 24th November.
