At the James Freeman Gallery

‘The Islands Across the Sea’

Currently showing at the James Freeman Gallery, Islington, is an amazing exhibition of artworks by Claire Partington and Cornelia O’Donovan entitled ‘The Islands Across the Sea’. At a recent private viewing the renowned Upper Street art gallery was packed with art lovers and collectors of the artist’s works.

Claire Partington creates amazing narrative earthenware figures very much in the European tradition,  and her technical skills are a wonder. Claire was shortlisted for the Young Masters Art Prize, London 2012. Well, my personal choice for her best art in this exhibition is ‘Master of the Universe’ (below left).
