Would like to see

The new Grayson Perry exhibition on at the British Museum, The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman. Artefacts made by unknown men and women from the museums collection are intertwined with Grayson's own work. Also visit the very witty blog of Grayson's 50 year old bear Alan Measles. The exhibition is on until the 19th February so plenty of time to fit this in.



Also the new Gerhard Richter exhibition Panorama on at Tate Modern until the 8th January. This is a major retrospective of this very diverse painter and includes his realist paintings, colourful gestural abstractions and paintings that respond to significant moments in history, it looks like there is much to see and enjoy in this exhibition.

A couple of smaller exhibitions are:
Elaine Pamphilon and her partner sculptor Christopher Marvell on at the Medici Gallery in London this finishes on the 8th November. I like this more abstract piece of Elaine's.


HERE I AM SITTING ON THE BEACH WATCHING THIS WAVE AND STEVE IS TALKING POLITICS

WINGED BIRD

And Through the Garden Gate is a new Exhibition of paintings by Cornish artist David Pearce, showing at Cadogan Contemporary in London. I really like the limited palette of these paintings, beautiful soft earthy tones and very reminiscent of Roger Hilton. This exhibition finishes on 5th November.

AMONGST THE RUSHES


There is not a great deal of information on Roger Hilton but I have a great book called THE FIGURED LANGUAGE OF THOUGHT by Andrew Lambirth published by Thames and Hudson. Also found this great video of Rose Hilton (Roger's wife) talking about  the recent centenary exhibition held at Newlyn Art Gallery. Beautiful paintings and I am a real fan.
