Visual Art 5/3/10

Patrick Bradley: Cutstrips Cabaret, Gordon Gallery, 13A Pump Street Londonderry

Until March 27, Wed–Sat 11am–4pm

Described as “a continuation and a culmination of years of study and exploration in paint”, Bradley’s work is more concerned with the process of generating forms than with interpreting meaning. For him painting is “a happening” where he allows himself to be led by the paint, having no real preconceptions of where each piece is going.

His abstract images emerge gradually after the adding and subtraction of layers until “a harmony is achieved”. Bradley feels his work is the embodiment of everything that has gone before and he believes that it has more in common with the old masters than it does with modern Expressionism.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
