Hanneke van Ryswyk

Went to the launch of Hanneke van Ryswyk's "Archipelagos" exhibition at the Olivier Cornet Gallery last night. Beautiful luminous work - acrylics on board never looked so ethereal. Also on show are monotype prints - very striking too, although on a much smaller scale.

Interesting introduction by Jeremy Hill of the Norman Gallery - with references to Bruce Chatwin's The Songlines and aboriginal paintings from Papunya. It's all about the view from above, from a plane, a satellite or your mind's eye.

Pictures don't do the work justice - the textures and luminosity are out of this world. Drop in to the Olivier Cornet Gallery - you won't be disappointed.
