James Turrell Gagosian Gallery

Incredible exhibition of James Turrell's work. The light installation you can walk into almost feels therapeutic. You can't see the light source, the whole space seems to glow to infinity.

Kentish Town Pool Refurbishment

I guess this is a diversion from my usual posts but something I wanted to celebrate. The Kentish Town Pool has just re-opened after a 3 year refurbishment programme and it is just absolutely beautiful. So much of the original victorian architecture has been preserved. Well worth a visit, even if you don't like swimming!

From my bike

A few pics from my cycle home.
Summer Roses catching the sunlight and an intriguing bit of interior design within a block of flats. This has been half demolished for quite sometime now. How anyone can paint all 4 walls and the ceiling flourescent yellow is beyond me! I almost killed myself climbing on a litter bin to take the pictures of the demolished building! (all in the name of a photo....)

Unicorn Theatre, London

This is the rough sketch model for my latest work at the Unicorn. The play is set in a canopy of trees. The foliage of the trees will be made from at least 100 transparent umbrellas. The umbrellas will have designs painted on them with the idea that under light they will look like a hundred tiny stained glass windows. Well, we'll see!
More pics on the way as it progresses....

Quilts 1700 - 2010 V&A Museum

This exhibition is just amazing and only on for a few more weeks - I can't recommend it enough. Allow a good few hours to get around. Such incredible stories behind the making of each piece. Labours of love.
I loved the more abstract pieces of Jo Budd as well as the earlier work. Go!

EXPOSED Voyerism, Surveillance and the Camera TATE MODERN

Went to the opening night on Friday. This exhibition is amazing, beautifully curated, I will definitely be going back. Fascinating subject and some stunning photographs particularly in the 30s/40s and 50s. I especially loved these two.
Weegee 'Lovers in the Cinema' is brilliant.
