Pontone Gallery’s first exhibition of the New Year is a solo show by Lee Jaehyo, more usually seen at Albemarle Gallery. I’m looking forward to seeing his new works using polished nails. Previously the designs have been abstract, looking like constellations of stars. The latest work looks to be moving towards more representational designs. Lee […]

No matter how prepared you think you are when you go to an art fair, you’ll always be caught unawares by a gallery who is showing an artist you weren’t expecting, or by a new side to an artist you thought you knew. In the most unlikely corner of the hall you can come across […]

It was always going to be difficult to get round the three openings last Thursday: Bethnal Green, Bloomsbury and Mayfair are not easy to squeeze in on the way home after work.

Korean artists and galleries put on a good show at Art14, and got plenty of attention from the press.

Lee Jae-hyo’s tables (pictured) looked particularly good in the reception area of this office building, just next to Moorgate tube. Also looking natural on […]
