Double Solo

In Art and artists on November 24, 2010 at 10:23 am

My friend Stephen Lacey invited me to the private view of the “Double Solo” exhibition held at La Galleria in Royal Opera Arcade, just off Pall Mall. Work by Michael Angove and Matthew Chambers was on show.

I was particularly impressed by Angove’s trompe l’oeil colour pencil works. The detail and technique is meticulous. As Stephen remarked, “it’s a young man’s art” – you need very good eyesight to be able to do this kind of work.

The ceramics by Chambers were pleasing but for me did not have the same appeal as the drawings. At any rate, I can’t afford any of them…
