Kensington & Fulham Open Studios – Earls Court Life
Sometimes the art gallery experience can be a little clinical, everything under glass, security guard on velvet rope duty, voices all hushed so as not to spoil the quiet required to truly appreciate the masters on display – stop me when you’ve decided against this particular type of excursion. I left ages ago.
So I’m very pleased to report that there are others who, like me, prefer a less solemn encounter with the easel.
Pocket Arts have addressed this issue head on and have come up with the perfect antidote. They have persuaded local artists across Kensington, Earls Court and Fulham to open up their personal studio space, be it in their homes or nearby warehouse, and allow us civilians a chance to enjoy their work in the very place it was created. An opportunity to see the flecks of paint that missed the canvas and remain stubbornly on the parquet below as a testament to the action involved in making something ultimately inanimate.
