My aim was to report from the new exhibition of The art of Chess from the Saatchi gallery and unfortunately that same aim was far too early and hence the show is next week. In clay pigeon terms: the disc hasn’t even been released and you’ve shot yourself in the foot. Granted first idea was completely flawed but the Saatchi never is. Instead I will tell you about the Korean Eye exhibit currently on. In the words of anyone who owns eyes (not necessarily Korean) or common sense then please go. It will not only enlighten you about worldwide talent but if the style does not suit your taste then the skill is definitely there to admire.
Gallery 1: A stark white feel which match the ceramic sculptures of Yeesookyung. The room is minimal but is a fascinating way to start the exhibit tour. The sculptures are beautiful, and are such a marvellous throng between traditional and modern.

When I was 19, I lived in Los Angeles, California, the city of angels and dreams and in my case, of unrequited love… we will get to the topic of art, I promise. I moved there to study film, but spent most of my time wasting it. Coincidentally, at this same point in my life, I not only believed that I would become a famous movie star, but that I would simultaneously meet and fall in love with actor, Jason Lee. For the record, this was well before Alvin and the Chipmunks.
