Once again Lansbury gives us an eclectic mix of motor racing posters, photographs and Mid-20th Century British Art. The real drama and excitement of motor racing is avidly brought to life through the posters and the photographs, with the latter coming from the era before crowd control and safety barriers.

He tells me he started dealing when he had the idea of selling his racing car and using the proceeds to start buying and selling artworks with the aim of purchasing a newer racing car. He added “in theory this seemed infallible.”

Two Mayfair Exhibitions – Samira Abbassy & Djamel Tatah

Samira Abbassy – Love & Ammunition, Rossi & Rossi, 27 Dover Street, London W1, until 10th July 2015

Samira Abbassy Myth of War & Beast of Revelation 2011 oil on canvas 71.1 x 81.3 cm (28 x 32 in)

In this show Abbassy, an Iranian-born, New York–based artist, has in this show used a feminine-orientated approach in most of the works which include self-portraits and a reinterpretation of Persian literature. The female figures are depicted in a hostile environment which evokes the idea of private and universal struggles. Samira explains “It’s as if I’m trying to depict myself from the inside out, starting with how it feels to be me, or rather, how it feels to be human”.

These twelve large-scale Untitled paintings in oil and wax are the work of the French-Algerian artist Djamel Tatah in his first UK show. Their subject is the silent figure, either singly, in pairs or in repetition, on a 1:1 scale. The fact that they rarely face the viewer directly but gaze upwards, downwards or into the distance is a reflection of solitude, pain, melancholy and war and peace that many of mankind endure. A thoughtful reflection on our present World.
