‘A View of England in Black’* (left) after Luciano Fabro’s L’Italia dell’oro (right) ready to start its tour before joining Benetton’s permanent art collection in Treviso, Italy.

Always Look on the Dark Side of Life – words on Rachel Whiteread

Please see here a link to my October 2017 article for Wall Street International, ‘Always look on the Dark Side of Life’, which looks at some underlying themes in the work of sculptor Rachel Whiteread.

Her works are currently on show at Tate Britain.

With special thanks to Hans van Houwelingen, without whom the story would not have been possible.

Click here to read the article and best wishes as ever.
