    I always enjoy London Art Fair, mainly as there's always a really good selection of classic modernist British Art to look at, such as works by Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson and Ivon Hitchens etc. Then lurking within that there's always a few other intriguing pieces to find.   So here's the Art...
  • For the price this is a cracking little piece of stylish kit. It looks cool in a space age kind of way, is easy and light to wear, and has a superb amount of functionality for the pricetag. If you want a wearable that’s exercised focused with some extra frills then this is for you.  ...
  • A fascinating exhibition that lures you in gently, and then slowly seduces you, until you find you’ve entered another world, another reality, the unknown.   It all starts innocuously enough in the entrance foyer where there’s a nice work by Gordon Cheung. In it a classical picture...

    You’ve got unlimited budget and unlimited wall space! What would you get from Frieze Masters? That’s the premise for this review, the same as our review of Frieze London, and here’s my choices. A little harder than Frieze London as there’s so many pieces that could make a won...

    Wouldn’t it be great to wander around Frieze London and buy anything you wanted and take it home. So that’s the premise for this year’s review. I’ve got unlimited cash and unlimited space at home. So what would I wrap up and take back to look at every day 1. Well a bi...
  • This was briliant.

  •   What can I say. I've been to loads of Mary Chain concerts. The first time on the automatic tour back whenever that was. I was so scared as my parents kept telling me people died at rock concerts. But I was such a fan I threw all that away to go. I just had to go. And then it did feel more ...
  • There were som gems here, but it took a while to dig them out. I hadn’t been to the Affordable Art Fair for a few years and this time it felt a bit more upmarket that the last time I went. There’s a a really nice cafe on an upper level with a cool view over all the galleries. Where, inci...
  • A cracking show. The private view was absolutely packed with an eclectic combination of lawyers and artists, all rounded off by Nicholas Serota arriving to look closely at the artworks while dressed in his customary long grey raincoat and briefcase.   I’ve always thought this grey busin...
  • In a brutal sum up the book says that your art is TOTALLY AND UTTERLY IRRELEVANT to getting into a gallery, or having any success. Frankly if you haven't realised that by now you’re missing something, but still having it spelt out in black and white by this book is well, depressing.   F...
