The Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy opens next week. I was lucky enough to be at a press preview today and felt delighted that this great show is happening (after Covid hiatus) The show if filled with the usual pick and mix of art from humble artists mingled with the work of Royal Academicians and invited artists. The theme, the environment, is clear to see and there are lots of references to global warming, to the bad behaviour of humans and the way the weather dominates so much of our life. There are also a lot of very witty and clever images. Of course I was on the look out for works on paper, or with collage, but I do love a good painterly painting and there were lots on offer. I’m simply going to add a gallery of the pictures which caught my eye. I particularly enjoyed the galleries curated by Grayson Perry; all the work is arranged over bright lemon yellow walls. You can’t help but smile.
