Yesterday was a long day. We travelled to London by coach, leaving at 8am and returning at 9pm. This was a college research trip and I am grateful to have been able to join them and visit the Tate Modern. It had been a long time since my last visit and the turbine hall is as dramatic as I remembered it.
The main exhibition was Paul Klee. I paid to go in and it was fabulous to see how intricate his work actually is. I was also surprised by how small the pieces are, having only seen them in books. The colour work, especially in the grid pieces, is dramatic. I love the red!
My favourite piece (I think) was this installation of drawings, paintings and fabric items on spikes.
and here I am in a Gerhard Richter piece consisting of several panes of glass leaning against a wall.
