Focus LDN: Spring Comes to the Menier

Regular readers of SEEN will know how much we admire the art curated (and indeed practised) by its founder Tom Cox. Hot on the heels of two previous exhibitions comes this Spring showcase, on at the Menier from 28th February to 4th March, 2017.

An exciting roster of artists (including famous Instagrammer @Levanterman) bring a diverse practice to the attention of collectors and art lovers alike. SEEN is particularly looking forward to the ‘Royal Blood’ collection by Ernesto Romano – an x-ray series of the Queen’s head, overlaid with glitter and in various colours, and the stunning Turneresque ‘Sun Guide Me Home’ by David Taylor. Tom Cox’s ‘Angry Night, Elephant and Castle Station’ perfectly captures the atmosphere of that location.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
