Julian Opie at Alan Cristea Gallery with the ubiquitous vinyl support now raised to the level of very good, high art.

1122
Helen Frankenthaler at Victoria Miro.

1123
Richard Serra of Gagosian with thickly covered sheets of paper, revealing uncovered edges built into the composition.

1124
Matthias Bitzer of Almine Rech Gallery with faces, mediating mathematical forms and his characteristic alternating light and dark bands of paint.

1125
John Chamberlain of Gagosian with posthumous artwork of crushed car parts shown in conjunction with his estate.

1126
Urs Fischer of Sadie Coles HQ with an emerging nude figure.

1127
Eric N Mack at Simon Lee Gallery with multi-media images and spaces.

Gallery run 4th March

Woven Nordic landscape from Andreas Eriksson, two outdoor artworks from Lisson Gallery artists, figurative works by Jeff Koons, Steven Claydon and Chantal Joffe. Lastly a journey back to Bauhaus.
11A close up of Andreas Eriksson’s new work at Stephen Friedman. Still delicate, abstracted, Nordic landscape but now a new medium of just the linen alone, that he paints on.

112Saw this animated figure in Carnaby Street. A quick google confirms it is indeed by Julian Opie of Lisson Gallery.

113Early on the run looking for a place to cross the Westway.

114Jeff Koons at Almine Rech.

115At St Martins in the Fields, Trafalgar Square. Distorted window round the back by Shirazeh Houshiary of Lisson Gallery.

116Chantal Joffe at Victoria Miro has a good show of portraits of the people in her life. Great stripes right across.

117Josef Albers at Stephen Friedman in a revisit to Bauhaus.

118Setven Claydon show at Sadie Coles called The Gilded Bough. The partial gold gilding of the sculptures places them (intentionally) between artefact and commodity. Circuitry, mechanisation and totems all add to a good installation.

119Leake Street.
