I am one for great conceptual art works and installations therefore London's contemporary scene is really appreciated. Here are two exhibitions I've really enjoyed during the past few days of hanging here:

Richard Prince has done controversial portraits since. He has always taken portraitures in the way that are more personal to his subject/models by and re-creating their already existing self-portraits or photographs.

This exhibition seems to have hit a questionable matter again. The idea behind the New Portrait is Prince would find an instagram image, comments on them and prints the screenshots in a much larger scale. Although there is a question on how in the world can this be called art, I personally appreciate New Portraits. His use of what's current and very fad is. Instagram is a digital space with a lot of free expression. Shouldn't a portrait say a lot about a person? Well, maybe a little selfie can present that.


Stunning Sexy Sculpture, Oh Yes!

Aberration, Agitation, Anger...

Ben Woodeson's sculptures and installations are probably one of the most exciting pieces I've seen this month. He develops challenging pieces and works on assembling simplistic sculptures that display both matters of stability and instability. His work is something that's really up my street. I enjoy the fact that those everyday objects and found materials used have a connection to the viewer's consciousness. Each single work displayed gives the feeling of uncertainty or unease and it affirms your own fragility. As a whole, it is an obstruction and a hurdle through a visually stunning, minimal and effective body of work. 

What do you think of both exhibitions? Art, are you into it? Let me know!
