1191
Lesley Vance of Herald Street with beautiful formal compositions that use a range of styles including a nice gestural brushstroke stylie.

1192
Oscar Tuazon at Maureen Paley with work that references major projects in the US. These involve live-in spaces as well as political agitation for communities to keep access to dwindling water resources as it gets syphoned off by industry. We are presented with the basic elements in the gallery of fire, water and earth, or in this case rust.

1193
Anwar Jalal Shemza at Hales Gallery exploring the vast possibilities of composition using just circles, squares and, of course, colour.

1194
The star-crossed lovers are featured in a great mural near Hoxton.

1195
Kathryn MacNaughton at Beers London with carefully rendered re-workings of computer and mouse-generated images.

1196
Sarah Sze of Victoria Miro with great photo and paint collages. They are shown alongside lots of torn images attached to the gallery’s walls with blue tape. It is as though the artist has recreated the laboratory of visual associations from which the formally mounted works derived, as an installation in the gallery.

1197
Katharina Grosse of Gagosian with giant spray paint and stencil works, executed as high art abstraction.

1198
Eline McGeorge of Hollybush Gardens who creates pixilated images by weaving emergency foil blankets into natural imagery. The juxtaposition of the two materials creates an extra pathos suggesting that nature maybe in the position of the injured patient.

1199
Footie-England flags casting their red-crossed shadow onto a pavement somewhere near the end of today’s run in Peckham.
