February is the month of culture

Comments Off on February is the month of culture art, my words, news, review

Art Galleries a go-go

With Dry January out of the way (not that I tried- it’s miserable enough anyway)! I embraced February with longing, and with that came an influx of new exhibitions for me to visit.

Alas I missed the press preview of the mighty Charles Saatchi, but I went along to see what all the fuss was about at his womens only exhibtion at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea. With all the talented females on the planet, it was interesting to see Mr Saatchi’s choice… Champagne Life features the work of 14 female artists, and has been staged to mark the gallery’s 30th birthday

This ranged from a stuffed horse balanced on a seemily squished ceramic ball, a sleeping papier-mache donkey and a room dedicated to neon realism paintings.

My favourite exhibit was not the the wall full of used cooking pots, but the larger than life monochrome paintings by Serbian painter Jelena Bulajić. A mistress of capturing old women in all their aged and wrinkled glory. It made me sad and happy and wanting to give a little wave to my nan.
