Gallery Run 31st January

51At The Approach. The penny has dropped! Helen Appel’s #canvasdeposits are actually painted! In this show curated by Jack Lavender her work strongly portrays the theme of detritus in domestic settings.

52Synaesthesia is the subject for Daria Martin at Maureen Paley Gallery. However she is interested in a stronger type called Mirror-touch Synaesthesia. People can actually feel a touch when they see it experienced by another.

53Making my way back from the Approach. There were two cats boarding their ship at The Limehouse Basin.

Gallery Run 15th January

49I followed the flow-lines through the 28 central galleries . This zig-zag section looks small compared to my complete jog of 47 Frieze participating galleries!

48Elizabeth Peyton at Sadie Coles has a lovely touch in the drawings.

43Bruce Nauman at Marian Goodman is fab!

46Magdalena Kita at Bruce Haines Gallery. She has produced imagery on a variety of exotic skins including wild boar. Bruce Haines was happy to share a chat about the art.

47Wayne Gonzales at Stephen Friedman. This cross hatching is a new technique in contrast to his silhouette type paintings of crowds.

45Claire Barclay at Stephen Friedman. She juxtaposes her curve motifs in leather with strands and some delicate comb-like objects.

44Paintings by Jean Baptiste Bernadet and sculptures by Benoit Plateus at Almine Rech. Simplicity is a theme.

41Gallery Runner enjoyed a sit down and was invited to play a game at Herald Street at Golden Square. That’s my foot sticking out. Oliver Payne has converted a conference chair into something more fun.

42Sunny today!

Gallery Run 8th January

31Great imagery on the Hertford Union Canal on the way to Brick Lane.

32The Hertford Union Canal gives a good access route to Brick Lane.

33At Beigel Bake on Brick Lane.

34Approach to Lisson Gallery from the Regent’s Canal.

35Susan Hiller at Lisson Gallery.

36Gordon Matta-Clark in the Maisons Fragiles group show at Hauser and Wirth gallery.

37Fabio Mauri’s installation at Hauser and Wirth. You don’t want to walk into the space at first. These are wax models but you don’t know if there are living people amongst them.

38John Hoyland’s painting at Pace London looks hot! A forged steel support in the gallery is in the foreground. During a previous show by Yto Barrada where ornate carpets were laid on the floor, the same columns looked like the supports of a mosque.

39Luisa Lambri at Thomas Dane gallery. She photographed Lygia Clark’s hinged metal-plate artwork. It was interactive in it’s day and gallery visitors could shape it.
