Leake street (pictured) will soon appear on a Gallery Runner map as the preferred access to the west end galleries, from the south. The image reminded me of the paintings of Jim Shaw that I would soon be jogging to.
Jim Shaw at the Simon Lee Gallery recycles old theatre backdrops from the 50’s and adds vivid images on top.

I enjoyed Erika Verzutti’s show at the Alison Jacques Gallery. “The Painter’s Wife”, 2015, reminded me of a typewriter and also of Paul Noble’s picture shown below.
Paul Noble has produced this great drawing which looks to me like pools of light on a starlit sea.
Hello folks welcome to my very first blog as the Gallery Runner. I begin at Regent’s Canal coming out of Limehouse Basin. This is the access route to the first gallery of the day, The Approach.
I was lucky to catch the last day of Sara VanDerBeek’s show before The Approach closes for Christmas.
With this camera angle I find a light installation outside numbers 2 and 4 Herald Street where my next two galleries are.
At Herald Street, the strip lights seemed to strobe when I took photos giving green bands. I liked the effect on Diane Simpson’s elegant assembly with its delicate lines and holes.
With the title of Maze Runner, Phillip Zach’s piece (at Laura Bartlett Gallery) must feature in my inaugural blog!
Cambridge Heath Road opposite AP Fitzpatrick, an art materials shop, reminds me of the pleasure of paint.
