The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

The large picture is thick and shiney, very lush, Deep Impact by Keith Tyson.

It's been a while since I went to the Summer Exhibition, I had Iris sleeping in her pram. What I like about this exhibition is that there is such a wide spectrum of style and subjects - good and bad. There is something for everyone. We are lead to believe that anyone - Joe public - can get their work displayed beside the academics of the Academy and those in demand within the current art scene. I presume this is true yet I wouldn't like to say how much space has already allocated and what percentage is left for the 'unknowns'.

In reality the depth and texture in this painting is amazing.

Look at the top right picture, so clever - there is a person in reflection in his glasses.
