Currently showing ‘Something for Everyone’ a group exhibition of unseen work at the Gallery (ending January 16th), is it an extraordinary space. On immediate entrance you are at the top of a dual stair, set about a third above the floor of the first space,requiring you to descend into the space. Lit from above by a partial Skylight on the hip of the roof, a small corridor/Information area leads into another smaller space, this time entirely roofed in a triple peaked glass roof.
Here the overhead view is stunning, as the surrounding buildings range from two to six storeys, and the Gallery being of two heights – but both of one level is strikingly overlooked, yet welcomes this gaze in the use of the glazed roof over the main display space.
I really liked Mayfair Lady 5 by Miles Aldridge – It is a stunning Photograph and I’m really feeling the blue thing at the moment but to be frank nothing in particular tickled my fancy. Hopefully when I return for the ‘Maastricht 2010’ Exhbit in March, Although most of my tastes are contemporary and innovative designs, I have a great love for the Classics.
