Baroni Gallery opening and Julie Mehretu at White Cube

Well the show opened spectacularly at Jean Luc Baroni in Masons Yard on Monday  on a warm balmy June evening, at last it seemed like Summer had arrived.    All six artists were there and the gallery was packed so people were spilling out into the courtyard outside.   There is a lot of work on show but is is cleverly hung so there is plenty of space around it and Novella Baroni and Flavio Gianassi, the curators, have hung work by the different artists alongside each other, making connections and highlighting the way the drawing and sculpture work together.

The following day I went to the Julie Mehretu exhibition at White Cube in Bermondsey.  The space with its huge rooms and high ceilings is like a cathedral, a temple to art.  Mehretu”s canvases are vast, intricate, detailed but with flowing drifts of wonderfully free marks in ink. A mixture of control and  movement.  Brilliant exhibition!
