Another five art things, news of another five shows and openings, news that has passed this way in recent days, another five things we think are worth sharing on these pages. No messing about this time around, no time for a big editorial today, no time for a small one either, five London art shows all opening very soon, five shows (in no particular order) that we think you might be interested in…
1 AIDA WILDE is a rather forthright artist, a strident print maker who knows a hashtag alone won’t change the world, she’s featured on these fractured pages rather a lot, she knows that print can sometimes be power, her bold work is indeed always powerful, often angry, she knows anger can be a positive thing though and she does have a fine sense of colour (as well as a touch humour) , “I’d be delighted if you joined me in a little soirée @splice_post next Thursday, 21st September 6-9pm. It’d also be a great chance to see the amazing building (& art works) in Perseverance Works & catch up over drinks & doughnuts🍹🍩. The works featured are part of my 3 month Artist in Residence that was installed across their two buildings in July, curated by @_jennylewis_ & @kathyfif.
2: Tal R: Sexshops – A collection of painting of sexshops. “The exteriors of sex clubs, massage parlours, strip clubs, adult theatres and other red-light establishments from around the world are depicted in new paintings by Copenhagen-based artist Tal R.

5: BELLA EASTON‘s work is always worth investigating in person, her latest show, Breath, opens this September at Deptford’s Bearspace and the gallery say they are “pleased to present works by South East London artist Bella Easton. Easton creates large-scale immersive installations from a series of small-scale drawings of her domestic interior. These are developed further using traditional techniques, oil on linen or copperplate etching, into panels. Easton reworks each segment individually using weight and pressure to offset and partially reflect, splicing these elements to create the whole”. The show runs from 23 September – 21 October, lots more information via the gallery’s website here.
BEARSPACE is at 152 Deptford High Street, London, SE8 2PQ
