Pictures at an Exhibition

11 Aug

Today I visited the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.

There were over a thousand exhibits and installations. A long, lazy, late lunch was needed and enjoyed afterwards.

I love art, but I am no expert and certainly cannot claim to know any more than liking what I like. Nevertheless here are three of my favourites from the day.

This is by Eileen Cooper. I could have chosen any of hers on display there. I had not seen her work before today. She is now a new adored artist.


The colours in this painting by John Wragg are striking, as is the girl with her look of haughty, bored disdain.



As regular readers may know, I particularly enjoy figurative art – particularly portraying women. However, this by Suzanne Moxhay caught my attention with its wonderful other-worldliness.


It was a good day.

    I quite like disdain girl… the colors are bold not so much garish but have more of a glow about them
