Labyrinth

Maze found at Victoria Station

Another surprise discovery in London recently – numbered mazes found at Tube stations. This one’s at Victoria.

It’s another Art on the Underground initiative called Labyrinth, which was commissioned for The Tube’s 150th anniversary in 2013.  The project also has its own section on the Art on the Underground’s website, where you can find the location of each maze.

Here’s the first one I found… at Edgware Road.

Altered Images

Altered Images

This is one of Lisa Pettibone’s pieces on display as part of the Elements of Capability exhibition at Lacock Abbey.

I liked how the warped metal transformed the paths, sky, grass and surrounding vegetation into something quite surreal looking. It’s a bit like how Capability Brown dramatically altered many of the landscapes he was involved with.

The exhibition continues until 22nd May 2016

Room with a View

Room with a view - from the Mall Galleries, LondonThe Mall Galleries doesn’t have many windows – this might be the only one – and I was struck by the shapes and colours which could be seen stretching upwards from the gallery.

Such bright sunshine and blue sky on a March day; that and the colour of the steps gave the scene more of a Mediterranean feel.

I wasn’t the only one who took a photo, another man did too. He with the intention of painting the scene later, me for the reasons already given. Besides, I’m rubbish at painting.
