RBS Strikes Again
By sheer coincidence, the Salon & Studio Galleries of the Royal British Society of Sculptors will be showing Helaine Blumenfeld VPRBS: recent works The Space Within from 7 to 29 February. (The VP stands for Vice President of the RBS.) At least this sculpture has a tactile quality - you feel you want to stroke it -, but it hardly lives up to its blurb: "Art is an encounter with the unexpected that can extend our capacity for experiencing ourselves and the unknown." Unexpected? Looks like another of those decadent abstracts which Brit. sculptors have been churning out for decades. I'll stick with Wallace and Gromit.
