I am writing this very late and rather in the wrong order because this weekend the weather is beautiful but last Sunday was very wet. After over-hearing someone in the pub talking about it the night before, we had gone to see a really small exhibition, at Somerset House, of a very famous tattoo artist from Japan that also paints; Horiyoshi III.
Whilst we were there, I photographed the courtyard meadow installation ‘Out of Sync’ made by Chilean artist Fernando Casasempere. He has filled the courtyard with 10,000 handmade clay flowers that were especially striking in the rain. The artist “hopes to give an impression of conformity and yet show how we are always able to spot subtle differences in repeated images”.
Of course with it being so wet, we enjoyed an extended coffee break in the beautiful Fernandez & Wells cafe in the recently refurbished East Wing.
