Brick Lane and the surrounding area (e.g Spitafields, Great Eastern Street) seems to be undergoing a rapid regeneration and becoming unrecognisable. It looks like all the predictable culprits are moving in which is a shame. But at least the area is still a living gallery for street art.............here are some new pieces I haven't noticed before.............
The private view for Gothic at the Fieldgate Gallery which is around the corner from Atlantis art supplies in Whitechapel. Although I am inherently offended and opposed to all things gothic..........I did actually really like this exhibition. Its a great new space to show contemporary art and this is a nicely balanced collection of photography, painting, sculpture, film and installation. There is a contrast in scale from the giant billboard size print "Children of the Gods" by Matthew Stone to the miniture insect sculpture of "The Resurrection of the Rat" by Tessa Farmer (which you have to get so close to see, you have to watch that you dont accidentally inhale the beasties up your nose!).
