Please see here a link to my article for Wall Street International (July) ‘Between a rock and a hard place’, which offers an antidote to social media overload and the inflated sense of the self(ie).

A digression on recent metaphysical sculptural works by the cryptic Arte Povera legend that is Giovanni Anselmo, at Marian Goodman in London.

Delighted with our recent film on Richard Long, the first drone footage ever taken of his work which puts it into a whole new perspective. Houghton is magnificent and special thanks go to all concerned, but especially to Mr. Long for the unprecedented access and to Lorcan for the great vocal.

Hans-Peter Feldmann: ‘Art Exhibition’


David by Hans-Peter Feldmann

It has been a privilege to work with Simon Lee Gallery to present Hans-Peter Feldmann at EAST Gallery, NUA. Hans-Peter is an enigmatic figure and ‘Art Exhibition’ reveals a typically deadpan title which implies amateurism but equally indicts professionalism and mystification in the arts. German-born Feldmann has exhibited in major art venues worldwide and is one of the key figures of post-conceptual art. In 2009 Hans-Peter’s work was a highlight of Making Worlds, the 53rd Biennale di Venezia and in 2010 he was awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Art Prize.

Hans-Peter is best known for his appropriation of objects and for making material interventions that are acerbic and insightful. Feldmann clowns around with copies of old master paintings, augmenting them with feature red noses, and versions of celebrated sculptures are chromatically revised in lurid pastiche. Michaelangelo’s David, which features in the show, being one notable example.

Exhibition open: Saturday 6 May- Saturday 22 July 2017

Open Tuesday to Saturday 12 noon- 5pm. Closed Sunday and Monday


Art Money, Smart Money

Got a few spare quid/bucks/euro/Bitcoin? Not sure how to balance Harvard Business Review’s expert market analysis, art futures predictions, auction data and your unreasonable passion for abstraction? In this brief article I take a biopsy of the various ‘organs’ of the body corporate and offer a view on where things might be headed. Caveat Emptor as always of course!
