Ann Sutton's art opening in Church Street, Marylebone, was one of the reasons for this recent trip to London.
On a hot summer evening, we went across the city to the show and met up with Ann and many other friends to see how this doyenne of weave has moved into painting and working with plastics. And what a pleasure it has been. I loved the small drawings of squares done as Ann travelled on various modes of transport across the world - the squiggly lines giving different characters to each drawing, and the shadows cast by wires curling and growing out of canvas and perspex. Fantastic fun, some of the pieces are strangely moving. I can't quite put my finger on why that should be but that is a reason for you to go and see the show too at the Patrick Heide Gallery until 9th August.
