|The Weight of the World.|
At the Serpentine Sackler Gallery last week I saw a surprisingly colourful artist displaying - the exhibition was called The Weight of the World.
In fact to label Etel Adnan as a 'Artist' is perhaps an understatement -still going strong at 91 she's also a multi-lingual writer of books and poetry.
The Arabic aspect of her heritage is clear in many of the works - bold colours and strong shapes.

There's quite a volume of work on show at the Magazine- Etel has worked in photography and film too - I liked the folded items shown in cabinets as well as Screens working in a similar vein.

|A screen too|
I liked the picture below which for me felt as though it had been influenced by Kandinsky.
Frustratingly many of Etel's works were the classically 'untitled' - which gives so little away.
