I had planned to make this a selection of the use of photography but, as there were too many other images I wanted to share, my final post of this series gathers together some of them instead.
I featured the Charlie Smith Gallery only a few weeks ago; they showed here with their regular stable of artists including a series of paintings by John Stark featuring apiarists and doctored albumen photographs by Tom Butler.Amongst other artists, Purdey Hicks Gallery showed this pensive, beautifully coloured piece by Pierre Bergian.
This triptych by Keith Vaughan, shown by Osborne Samuel , also caught my eye. It’s fascinating how this piece, by Karen Gunderson at Waterhouse & Dodd, is almost photographic when seen like this but appears much more ambiguous in the flesh, being pure black glossy paint on linen. Coming back to photography, One Thousand, Three Hundred and Five, by Chris Kenny at England Gallery is a very simple idea and yes, is a circle. It reminded me of sequins hanging from fabric from this distance, with the faces only apparent once you get closer. Vigo Gallery is always worth a look, this time showing Konstantino Dregos and Oliver Marsden, whose work I believe I’ve featured before. On a different note this football pitch of thorns, from a themed series by Pierre Poggi at Federico Bianchi appealed; I know my footballing friends would enjoy it. And last – I’m sure I’m well over the minute here – the unsettling world of Adam Dix shown by The Contemporary London. I hope I haven’t stretched your patience too far with this one and promise to keep short and sweet next time.
