tate trip

Yesterday I caught the Per Kirkeby exhibition at the Tate Modern. I have to admit that I had never heard of him, but I enjoyed the exhibition immensely. These pictures cannot do justice to the intense colours and beautiful lines of the largescale paintings, so I would recommend a trip down to see it if you can. The paintings are real 'growers'; the more you study them, the more interesting and beautiful they become.

I also caught the Futurism exhibition at the same time, which I was more familiar with, but it still turned up some unexpected fabulous works which I had never seen, including a leaflet in which knitting was represented and some stunning Wyndham Lewis paintings which I would gladly hang in my home.
