ORGAN THING: All Night at Sherbet Green, another rather strong art show and an opening night on the Hackney Road but what the hell or what the who was it actually all about? Who the hell did what and does any of that matter?

All Night at Sherbet Green, East London , November 2022 – Ah, I love the smell of a freshly painted gallery on a Thursday evening, no, scrub that, I detest the chemical smell of a freshly painted gallery, why do people insist on painting their gallery walls the day before an opening?! Leave it, let…

ORGAN THING: Caitlin Keogh at East London’s The Approach. Bold paintings, images from all over the place, very much for now though, a narrative for now and another recommended art exhibition to go check out…

Caitlin Keogh, Running Doggerel at The Approach, East London – Back to the Approach, as fashionably aloof as they might be up there, I do like the Approach, dubious stairs and everything else. There’s been some really good shows in their East London space over the last couple of years, never predictable, almost always rather…

ORGAN: Five Recommended Art Things – Caitlin Keogh at The Approach, Dale Grimshaw down Brick Lane, Hiroshima Shinkichi at Moosey London, Malcolm Liepke at Pontone Gallery, Eleanor Green and Usva Inei at hARTslane and…

Well Frieze Week came and went, was it all a bit underwhelming this year? Not the fair, the actual week itself? Never mind that, that was then, this is about this week. Five more art things then. five art things, almost posted ahead of time this week (so don’t be phoning up to complain again).…

ORGAN PREVIEW: You might say Lee Maelzer is a painter’s painter, she has a Frieze Week West End opening at D Contemporary that you really should try and see…

Frieze week preview thing: You might say Lee Maelzer is a painter’s painter, her paintings feel like they are as much about painting itself as anything else. About the paint, about the emotion of the process, not just that though, if that’s all her paintings were then we wouldn’t be previewing her forthcoming solo show…

ORGAN: Five Recommended Art Things – Amy Beager at Kristin Hjellegjerde, Her Discontents Downstairs at The Department Store, Nick Grindrod, Anne Rothenstein and Caroline Coon at Stephen Friedman Gallery…

Right then, like we already said, time to whatever again, well we said that last week (and the week before), are we into a so called new art season now? Never did see much of difference between August and September, has the season kicked off now? Five more art things then. five art things, almost…

ORGAN PREVIEW: Nick Grindrod’s much-anticipated solo exhibition, Strata, presented by Smithson Gallery, opens in Soho, London, this Friday…

“This Autumn, we return to London with Nick Grindrod‘s much-anticipated solo exhibition, Strata” so say Smithson Gallery, and in this case, “much-anticipated” does feel right. There’s quite a few of us waiting to see Nick Grindrod’s work in the actual living breathing flesh. You might be familiar with him from some of our Cultivate on-line…

ORGAN: Five Recommended Art Things – Babak Ganjei’s Vibe Dump at Atom Gallery, Ra Tack at IMT, Pigeon Park 2, Ken Currie at Flowers, Chou Yu-Cheng at Kate MacGarry Gallery, Carolee Schneemann at Hales and…

Right then, time to whatever again, well we said that last week (and the week before), the start of a so called new art season, never quite got that way of thinking myself, for some of us art doesn’t stop and if it is starting again well then it really hasn’t yet has it? True,…
