The standard of work in this exhibition is tremendous; I always come away appreciating the skill and talent of the artists. I have taken a few pictures of my favourites to add here.

It is a competitions so you have to select your own favourite, mine was (Rhyming slang for worth nix) by artist Janne kearney

 

 

 

 

 

 

America after the fall

Had a trip down to sunny London to catch the exhibition at the Royal Academy “America after the fall” before it all finished to make way for the Summer exhibition.

Took the audio guide to learn about the pictures how they fitted into the exhibition and some background on the artists, My real reason in going was to see Grant Woods American Gothic, it was a great surprise to see his other work especially Daughters of revolution which I thought was as wonderful picture full of satire and hidden meaning.
