I’ve developed an RSI in my right arm so I’m teaching my left hand to use the computer mouse.  Easier said than done when you’re right handed!

Visited the Patrick Heron Exhibition at the beautiful Tate St Ives  Gallery.  I loved his paintings, especially the more colourful ones.  I’d like to revisit this exhibition, later in the year when it comes to the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate.  I also went to the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden which was a lovely setting but I’m not keen on her work.

 

Various paintings from the Patrick Heron Exhibition at Tate St Ives  Gallery.

I’ve read several reviews of the Heron exhibition and the critics all criticise the ahistoric curation.  Paintings are grouped by theme instead.  Luckily for me, as a painter, the themes made sense:   unity; the edge; explicit scale; asymmetry and re-complication.
