….by Miyako Tsurusawa (w1C until oct 3) , if you are, as indeed i am, a sucker for clowns in any shape or form then this series of paintings is for you….melancholy clowns, sexy clowns, naughty clowns and nipple-nosed clowns! outstanding and beautiful in an unsettling way.

just caught up with one of the 4 exhibitors of space 1F (ends tomorrow) her name is Aoki, a former art student, here for her 6th time and also a previous exhibitor at vol 29!  in this collaboration she presents a really stunning collection of works spanning the last 2 years, on one wall watercolours which twist the mind by virtue of beautiful colouration combined with her sympathetically dark characters……catch up with her yourself at http://blacktower.web.fc2.com.
