Am I the only person who feels a bit in ‘Back to School’ mode? If you too are thinking of doing a little wardrobe update ready for the term ahead, I’ll give you the lowdown. Whilst some shops have an array of nice pastels in and a few have the occasional splash of red/purple.. the majority of shop on my brief trip down Bond Street looked like a Janelle Monáe video. Which of course is never a bad thing, as she is srsly ossum, but if you are looking for some light relief from some SERIOUS stripes then I have the answer.

The Ronchini Gallery, based just off of Bond Street is currently housing one of the sweetest little exhibits I have ever seen. Dream no small dreams features the miniature worlds of Adrien Broom, Thomas Doyle and Patrick Jacobs. I loved the teeny-tiny constructions and little miniature worlds each artist manages to conjure up. Before anyone says it; yes, I know, I am pre-disposed to believing good things come in small packages, but trust me on this one guys, it’s well worth popping in for a mid-shopping looksie.

On View: Berndnaut Smilde’s “Antipode” at Ronchini Gallery

Berndnaut Smilde’s work, at its core, reflects the human impulse to master the forces of nature. Smilde carefully controls the temperature and humidity of a room to produce ephemeral clouds with the help of a fog machine. Though the clouds are only visible for a matter of seconds, they live on in artfully-staged photographs that Smilde exhibits among installation elements. His current show, “Antipode,” is on view at Ronchini Gallery in London through June 14. The clouds in his new photos are just as striking as the interiors they inhabit. The large nimbuses creep through Gothic churches, Rococo chambers and empty factories as if they had lives of their own, playing with the idea of a supernatural presence.

For Berlin-based artist Jens Wolf, his first ever UK solo exhibition is an important one. As one of the key figures in the development of process art, he has taken inspiration from the abstract movements of the 20th century and mixed them together with familiar motifs to creating striking, but simplistic and repetitive geometric paintings …
