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”

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.

A Tuscan Art Adventure in Hong Kong

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.

Creating an Art Festival in Bagni di Lucca

On a late summer’s day last year, under a pergola dripping in wisteria and overlooking splendid vistas, a thought was born to a philanthropist and his friends, to have an art festival in Ponte a Serraglio.  For years we had all been coming here, and every year another one or two shops would close down. Continue reading “Creating an Art Festival in Bagni di Lucca”

‘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”

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”

La Rondine – a new gallery in Ponte a Serraglio

Swooping through the air, their forked tails and pointed wings in silhouette against brilliant blue skies, they arrive in spring and leave in autumn, busy all summer long, tending their babies and devouring the myriad of insects floating over the fields and waterways, chirping socially through the balmy twilight evenings on top of their nestsContinue reading “La Rondine – a new gallery in Ponte a Serraglio”
