Form and Process at The Gallery

An exhibition of new paintings by Piers Ottey
at The Gallery, Redchurch Street, London, E2
from 29 October to 10 November


Family friend, Piers Ottey, is currently exhibiting his new work in conjunction with Zimmer Stewart Gallery at 50 Redchurch Street, London, E2 - in the heart of Shoreditch's edgy art scene.

If you are in the area, or fancy a night out with a difference, I can strongly recommend popping into The Gallery to see Piers' latest work. As the title of the exhibition suggests, the artworks to be shown will demonstrate the artist's view on both form and process in art. He has painted several entrancing views of London, including pieces that demonstrate the awesome power of Battersea Power Station as a landmark to more humble view points of view which capture the drama and querkiness that is London. He also has some brilliant pieces showing scenes from his travels.

So when I say 'a night out with a difference' what I mean is that on Thursday nights the galleries in the east end open up their doors as part of a semi-permanent' gallery trail. It makes for an entertaining evening. Every month I try to see something on the Thursday lates - I often stop into The Whitechapel Gallery (for First Thursdays), or at least end up there for dinner at their amazing restaurant who's menu has been carefully created by the talented Angela Hartnett
