You know the saying: ‘you wait ages for a bus then two come along’?
Quite often I see a show and there may be one stand out piece or even none, in an ordinary mass. Then, in one week I saw two shows where every piece was perfect and the hang of the show, the design of the show, was sublime so that every piece had its place. The first was Jyll Bradleys’ ‘Currency’. This is the second of the two.
I knew nothing about Lucia Nogueira’s work apart from seeing the front cover of the show at Annely Juda Fine Art in London. So when I walked in the room I was completely blown away.
This is stunning work. Beautiful, poignant, witty and also dark. What more do you want from art?
