Summer Favourites

June 25, 2015

Have you been to see the RA Summer Exhibition? I have. (Just to remind you, you can see it online this year – simply click here. You can: “browse all the work, collect and share your favourites on social media or enjoy a guided tour”. The wonders of virtual reality...)

I have picked my ten favourites.

I didn’t pay much attention to what architects and sculptors had to offer, I even managed to skip photographs; at the moment I’m very fond of paintings and prints.

I looked at all 1131 pieces and chose 10. This little exercise opened my eyes – now I know how hard it is to select something for an exhibition when you have a limited amount of space on your walls. If you don’t believe me, try it yourself – visit this exhibition and then show me your favourite ten.
