Tate Abstracts in Painting and Sculpture

The free spaces in Tate Modern are more space than art, but this height and space always make me wander slowly, especially when there are various pieces of sculpture positioned across the floor. The paintings are widely spaced, and depending on my mood I might seek out these great white spaces to observe and think. […]

Barbican Centre Architectural Tour

I’ve wondered before why some entrances at the Barbican seem to be closed, and always imagined that it was the time that I was there, or it was just a co-incidence that this or that entrance appeared to be closed off.

Next to the Roman London Wall in the City of London, the museum of one of London’s free jewels, best to visit in sections in my opinion, to avoid overwhelm. […]

V&A: The Human Body in the Sculpture Court

The V&A’s long sculpture gallery is a buzzing thoroughfare between the garden court, cafe, the shop and the ground floor galleries, but in it’s own right it has some very special pieces of sculpture. I love to see head’s turn as something catches the eye and many people sit on the benches taking a rest […]
