wild indeed...

ica exhibition, until 2nd may: paintings, prints, poetry, film, music. the upper rooms show the breadth of his output. stay and watch the documentaries upstairs but to get the proper experience visit dirty water club and see billy perform with his band. see also his website particularly the paintings and beautiful woodcut prints (my favorite)

moore


i have just visited the henry moore exhibition at tate britain. this is mostley about his sculpture however the examples of his many drawings and primarily sketches are my favorite finds. these have great fluidity and an off beat use of colour and are as exciting as his 3D work. if you are a moore fan the perfect place to really see his work is at his former home where you can look around his studio and gardens. here they have beautiful examples of the textiles that moore designed in the 1940's for ascher ltd (see last two photos). very inspiring!
