Simon Garden – Successive Approximations, until 24th November, Thompson’s London
Now having his sixth exhibition with the gallery, Simon Garden’s work is highly imaginative and somewhat surreal. He paints in oil on board , priming the surface to create the furrow-like look his works have and which contributes greatly to the dreamlike quality of his work.
Patricia Swannell: Memories for the Time Being, until 30th November, jaggedart.
Although she has exhibited at the gallery since 2007, this is Swannell’s first solo exhibition. Her works reflect her concerns with time and nature and suggest how a particular moment allows us to look both forwards and backwards but with the caveat that these special glimpses of the beauty and balance found in nature may be fading and even eventually lost. Her works are lyrical and elegant statements of this point of view.
