Up close and personal
Take in a collection of work by the fabulous French artist François Morellet at Ikon. The abstract paintings, made in 2006, replicate pieces originally produced by him in 1952, magnified to a scale of 4:1.

Morellet
Ooh white and orange


This free exhibition at Ikon Gallery is one for art lovers, if you're a fan of Morellet's work then you'll appreciate his exploration of perspective. If not, then go along anyway (it's free so why not?), and make up your mind about his magnified pieces of art.

Point of view, opinion, and reality are a skewed mix that have always interested me. When you're on a plane for example, everything seems to tiny, so insignificant to the larger landscape, but up-close those little things are what you base your life around, and the tiniest speck of information can change everything.

Grey triangles, white triangles


If you like photography, art, or just enjoy looking at things that you don't always see then Morellet's (rather self-involved) paintings might have you asking the same questions I have, or new ones, who knows? After all, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, whatever floats your boat, each to their own, and other idioms that make us feel superior when our thoughts jar with others.
