Paul Beliveau – For the Love of Books, Plus One Gallery, 89 – 91 Pimlico Road, London SW1, until 28th November 2015
This Canadian-based artist brings us into a world of oversized books, some real and some imaginary. It is both a celebration and examination of culture with the books being divided by themes such as music, art and history. I am envious of the tidy way in which he displays these tomes that reflect times present and past.
A Seasonal Feast by Mimi Roberts & Alice-Andrea Ewing, Potterton Books London, 93 Lower Sloane Street, London SW1, until 30th November 2015
This is certainly an appetising show for the senses combining Mimi’s still life’s of fruit, fish and vegetables inspired by the 16th and 17th century artists of Holland, Italy and Spain with the bronze sculptures of Alice-Andrea’s ‘Organic Series’. The latter, cast directly from the natural, features chillies, aubergines, apples, walnuts and figs as the subject matter.
