Visited Painting Now: Five Contemporary Artists, Tate Britain
I really enjoyed this show. I especially liked Simon Ling's large urban paintings. They are raw with real energy. They seem to be painted on an orange impremitura which gives them life. I'm sure I have seen him painting on the street on Hackney Road... It is interesting that all five painters are dealing with trompe l'oeil; there is a figurative element to all of them to varying degrees.
