Thanks to Art St Kitchen for inviting us to try their newly relaunched restaurant serving international cuisine. 🍽🍷😋

The restaurant is located in the heart of London near the Palace of Westminster, Westminster, Big Ben and the Thames. Tucked away, the restaurant is based in a modern building near some of London’s most famous classic streets.

We tasted their sharing dishes including salt beef and gherkin croquettes with parsley and mustard, fried squid… All the dishes have familiar ingredients with their own creative twist!

Super Sharp Reloaded: RETURN II JUNGLE at Selfridges until Thursday 6 September 2018

Saul Milton and Tory Turk present Super Sharp Reloaded, the second instalment of RETURN II JUNGLE. 🔊🔊🔊

Held at Selfridges on the 3rd floor in the Designer Studio, the latest instalment comprises of a static installation inspired by British music and fashion of the golden years of Jungle music from the mid-late 90’s.

Initiated by Saul Milton’s extensive Moschino Collection – the unique display will explore the way in which the Jungle era played host to the appropriation of Italian high fashion labels.

Drawing on Jungle music whilst also transporting it into the present day, and re-vamping the genre for the modern-day music fan, the installation will be accompanied by a specially curated soundtrack by Saul featuring audio quotes from jungle artists such as Navigator, Uncle Dugs and renowned writer Brian Belle-Fortune.

There will also be a specially created film by Tom Archer, featuring rare footage by Garry Clarke from his archive of junglists and ravers at popular club nights such as One Nation and at venues like Sanctuary.

Leelee Kimmel: Wormhole at Simon Lee until 30 August 2018

A solo exhibition by New York-based artist Leelee Kimmel, her first in the UK. In her latest work, Kimmel presents a series of large-scale abstract paintings that are confrontational in both colour and dimension, exploring themes of creation and destruction. The immersive element of her work is further developed through sculptural pieces and a five-minute Virtual Reality work that invites total submergence into the deep space of Kimmel’s creative world. 🤓

The large-format paintings feature graphic shapes clustered in thick multilayered pools of bright acrylic paint, which weave across fields of solid white or black. The paintings are imbued with a restless energy and freedom that is intrinsically linked with how the artist creates her works. The resulting compositions deliberately move in and out of representation, sensuous and strict, gloss and matte, tangled and full. The complex patch-work of imagery, consisting of crosshatch and opposing vector-like lines and patterns as well as interrupting biomorphic forms, has an otherworldly quality. Forceful and nervous lines are reminiscent of artists such as Basquiat and Twombly, while the uncanny worlds and dreamlike atmospheres created by the artist emerge into a sort of mutant realism.
