Back again!

Michael and I have been living in the south of France since the covid outbreak. We bought a little holiday house a few years ago and then recently added a studio to the nest so we could work when we came here. We love it here. We love it with the same concerted passion weContinue reading “Back again!”

Earth and Sky

Rover Thomas in the desert making art that is of the earth, simple, iconic masterpieces, representing deeply the land he was, he not separate, but a part of a whole intimately felt universe.  Traveling overhead in planes, peering from tiny windows many times over the years, looking down into the land of Australia, seeing theContinue reading “Earth and Sky”

The Photography of Ella Haller Zwierzchowska at La Rondine Gallery

Colour must be the story of India.  I wanted to see more.  I wanted to be overpowered by it as you are when you go to India.  The taste of it was yummy, a glow in the light, exotic fabrics edged in gold, the haze of dust, the flamboyant twists and turns of architecture, crumbling…TheContinue reading “The Photography of Ella Haller Zwierzchowska at La Rondine Gallery”

Art week in Hong Kong

This is Art week in Hong Kong.  It is huge and it is really wonderful.  There is so much good art out there and I am happy to say, the La Rondine exhibition stands up to all of it, albeit a small show, in the confines of Gallery ZZHK in Wa Lane. Monday night rockedContinue reading “Art week in Hong Kong”

A Tuscan Art Adventure in Hong Kong

I am sitting in the corner looking over a beautiful exhibition of art work by the La Rondine artists in ZZHK Gallery in Hong Kong.  We have secured this lovely space over an incredibly busy period in the art month of Hong Kong.  Art Basel is next week and so are a number of subsidiaryContinue reading “A Tuscan Art Adventure in Hong Kong”

La Rondine Gallery flies to Hong Kong with Seven Artists

La Rondine Gallery is in Hong Kong!  Flying like swallows to warmer climes, the nomadic artists of La Rondine Gallery have sent their art to Hong Kong. Seven of us will be represented here, at Gallery ZZHK, a lovely space with an eclectic, almost Parisian character, in a small laneway, Wu Lane, just off HollywoodContinue reading “La Rondine Gallery flies to Hong Kong with Seven Artists”

‘eclectic’ Michael Cartwright’s exhibition at La Rondine Gallery

Blood red, dripping, over the canvas, through the net, into the royal blue black sea.  The boat incandescent against a golden, almost a dirty gold, luminous light.  ‘The Catch’, huge and slaughtered, in the depths of the sea.  The colours are exquisitely beautiful and the subject poignantly ‘triste’, sad.  It’s an amazing painting in itsContinue reading “‘eclectic’ Michael Cartwright’s exhibition at La Rondine Gallery”

A land of art, milk and dripping honey

I am lying on the sand in a little cove just below Livorno.  The water is gently lapping nearby and a child plucks delightedly at each gush of wave.  The sun is warm and low in the sky and the big gulls swoop and swarm over a dark patch in the water.  I feel deeplyContinue reading “A land of art, milk and dripping honey”

Jacob Cartwright, Guy Dowsett and Henna Kaikula performing ‘Reflections’ at La Rondine Gallery

Piano and clarinet burring insistently, drops of sweet notes like water tinkling in a bowl, a little bit sad, reflective, pensive.  Her body rises and falls like a pendulum, seductive with the same graceful fluidity of a cat, her contortions elevated to a beautiful dance, a body without boundaries.  The performance of music and contortionContinue reading “Jacob Cartwright, Guy Dowsett and Henna Kaikula performing ‘Reflections’ at La Rondine Gallery”

Jacob Cartwright, ‘Reflection’, a photography exhibition at La Rondine Gallery, Bagni di Lucca

Water.  Reflections of strength and beauty, transparent layering of leaves and stone, transposed by light immersing itself in the thousand crystals of marble and lying in wait in the luminous pond below.  A feeling of quiet meditation in the whole exhibition. Jacob Cartwright has drawn inspiration for this series of photographs from his excursions walkingContinue reading “Jacob Cartwright, ‘Reflection’, a photography exhibition at La Rondine Gallery, Bagni di Lucca”
