Wow- we're lucky (some of us)
After a somewhat puzzling couple of hours on the subject (I think) of Philosophy and Logical Positivism (where I felt the pull, perhaps intended by our leader Scott of Wittgenstein) I went on my Tuesday semi-routine hunt for 'Art' today's target being the new (-ish) Hockney exhibition .
|Halcyon days and a gallery to mmatch|
Well I had prepared by printing a map and headed for my quarry, but ahead of the navigation serendipity brought me to Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street and it was a blast.
The Gallery's showing some work under the banner of Heroes and Villains (mainly Heroes I'd say).
I'm not really sure what the rules of the game are that mean these places don';t get flooded with ne'er-do-wells but this one trooped in anyway - Ground floor featured many works from Marvel Comics that had been slightly ponced about with and had 'Stan Lee' Signatures on along with Andy Warhol's Ads (1985)
|More Heroes than Villains|
Also on the Ground floor and in the basement are several Russell Young works that had a shimmer of Diamond dust (both metaphorically and literally) - Young a British born artist I'd not heard of has a fascinating back story and is much taken it seems by heroic icons.

There's work too by Raphael Mazzuco of many legends - including a rather nice Bob Marley quote Some people feel the rain others just get wet.
Quite a few Santiago Montoya as well as lots of three dimensional works by Mauro Perucchetti
The show was neatly summarised by the Spanish artist Ernesto Canovas- The Beginning (2014) - as far as I'm concerned it's all great variety of fun items (more on Hockney show to follow v. soon).
