I take pleasure in sharing these two shows with you. They are at The Fine Art Society 148 New Bond Street, London W1.
Gordon Reece – The Art of Collecting, until 16th June 2017
This collaboration with Gordon Reece the esteemed dealer in Asian and African artefacts is a veritable treat. His love of the objects is reflected in what he buys and they are eminently liveable with as this show which sees them displayed among the Fine Art Society’s furniture and artworks skilfully proves. A great celebration of Tribal Art.
Hylton Nel – For Use and Display, until 16th June 2017
The South African ceramicist Hylton Nel shows his flair for creating both useful and decorative objects. You will discern influences from Chinese, Staffordshire and European ceramics in them and he uses many ideas in their decoration whether sexual, whimsical or written prose. A delight and one understands why his works are eagerly snapped up.
