PUKING

Your baby is puking, your dog is pulling, the clouds are emptying…

What do you want your husband to say at that point… to ease the pain…

“Can we got to the shell gallery?”

*****

I mean this wasn’t quite the avant grade art galleries of Bethnal Green, yet neither was it the £6 fan museum of Greenwich.

Its amazing what people can do with shells.

Imagine what they could put those skills to…

Imagine.

PS Oh, its free.

PPS You just have to travel to the loveliest town in the world.

TONIC

It’s nice when things are paired together beautifully.

Bangers and mash.

Gin and tonic.

Horses and carriages.

Love and marriage.

Americans and Englishmen

And music and art.

*****

You see that’s what they’ve done here @nationalgallery #soundscapes.

Some words: A lake, choirs, skulls, electronica, The Tudors, monks, orchestras, John the Baptist, ballet, Jesus, bathers, another lake.

I wonder about the invigilators hearing the same music and looking at the same paintings over and over again.

They are beautiful the pairings but… All day.

The Cezanne was my favourite.

All haunting.

Cheers,

MILK

There’s an optimal time for looking at art and if there’s lots of art you just look at each piece for a shorter amount of time.

*****

There’s loads of stuff at the Saatchi.
At the moment it’s Africa and Latin America.
Some of it is good.
Some of it is rubbish.
You don’t really care coz it’s free.

Some words: nudity, ants, war, footballs, keyboards, kissing, dots, sacks and milk.

Cheers,

THERE/NOT THERE

Sometimes an exhibition ticks a lot of boxes for a person.

Duchamp @barbicancentre. Muddy from dogs.

Heres pretension…

Whats interesting about this particular one is that its all really about the interconnectivety of duchamp and these people he influenced and how thy kind of fed off each other.

And played chess.

Some words: boxes, wheels, urinals, nude (descending a staircase), sub cubist boobs etc, pianos, chess, musical boxes, there, not there,

,

*****

An absence that makes things more complete.

Love,

Harley xx

ALRIGHT SOMETIMES

This little staffy always feels a great deal of pressure after a major @tate restrospective to write pertinent words of insight.

Is it not enough to say we enjoyed it?

Schwitters.

We had a nice time looking at the pictures/sculptures.

Oh im sorry, ten pounds.

But thats alright sometimes,

Love,

Harley xx

CONCENTRATE

To see a film.

In a different environment.

Is a great thing.

Eg remember when we saw oliver twist in the rain.

Well this was dry.

It was in Da Bethnal Green.

There were beanbags.

A confused man came in.

But other than that.

I had the remote control to a big screen.

It was very peaceful.

Details: @uniongallery #foxfur.

Oh it was short.

We like short.

We did concentrate for a whole hour though which is good in 2013.

I say concentrate because it was, like, not dark we tweeted how much we were concentrating and enjoying it.

Love,

Harley xx

INCLINATION

Now our natural inclination @thedogwhatblogs in to be glib, sarcy and ironic to a point where its not funny.

*****

Not today.

Obviously we always bang on about galleries.

But this is a bit different…

a bit more…

In the wondrous @thestonespace leytonstone there are artists in residence working away and u can watch.

Sometimes the boy wonder is there too.

Don't watch him.

All he does is blog.

Just go.

*****

And then you toddle up the road to watch a panto.

Hear 'I wish it could be xmas everyday' for two more weeks…

And laugh your head off.

East, east, east london as they say at leyton orient…

Oo u could go there too and make a whole damn day of it…

Love,

Harley xx
