Secret garden

Fenton House in Hampstead London was my surprise find today. It was ‘Open House’ this weekend but it was not the house but the garden that took me by surprise. Admittedly it was a beautiful sunny day but there is no doubt the garden is their treasure. Well kept, beautiful plants and wonderful places to sit on a bench and enjoy London.

Lightening my spirits

Work by Natalia Avdeeva at the Bankside Gallery

An exhibition worth going to at Bankside Gallery. ‘Above And Beyond’ A Major Exhibition of Paintings and Drawings by Natalia Avdeeva. Land – Sea – Cityscapes.

Natalia’s work has a depth and colour, which lightens ones spirits. Finding artists outside the larger institutions is invigorating. This exhibition is free, in a great location and on until 2nd July.

Out of the sunshine and into something beautiful

I visited ‘The American Dream ‘pop to the present at the weekend and I am so sorry this exhibition has now closed. I would have gone earlier and shouted from the rooftops for people to see it. This exhibition included works by American artists; Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and many more. The design and content of the show was truly inspiring, providing an insight into the production of the works alongside the art and in a space, which enabled visitors to contemplate and enjoy the experience fully.

A really good British Museum moment.

Objects,Spaces and Inspiration

Whenever I need some inspiration and today was one of those days, I search for a creative wonderland and aim for that. Today it was the Tate Modern that I went to and a free exhibition entitled ‘Between Object And Architecture’ was where I found myself. This piece by Cristina Iglesias ‘Pavilion Suspended in a Roon/2005’ drew my attention and created a space and food for thought.
