C4765798-E600-4B1A-BA59-C3475EC98E8DTo Preston on Saturday for a visit to the Harris. The Stanley Spencer has returned, and the other paintings have been re-arranged. Some were missing, but there was one that I can’t recall having seen here before – A Musical Clown by Laura Knight, oil on canvas, 1930. There was also an exhibition by Lubaina Himid, which was mildly interesting and visually (to me) underwhelming. I get the points she’s trying to make, and I see why she uses the materials* she does . . . but I don’t find that it works.

The bus station is being redeveloped, and I’m sure it’s had a clean since I last saw it.

* I take that back. I thought the ruffled-lace shirt front of one of the cut-out characters was made from rubber gloves. Not so. Condoms, in fact.

About aides mémoires

This is a chronological list of things I have seen, places I have visited, and thoughts that have wandered through the space between my ears. A reading group of one; an art appreciation society limited by my preferences and prejudices; opera criticism by one who knows nothing about the subject.
