I See a Seashell

I recently went to Kettle's Yard art gallery to see a fundraising exhibition called 'Artists for Kettle Yard'. It has been set up in aid of raising money for the gallery, with all works being either sold or put into auction. 
The artists exhibiting are all well known and most have previously had work at the gallery. Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Bridget Riley, Callum Innes, and Helena Almeida are just a few of those famous artists. 

I was particulary impressed by an oil painting of a giant wave by Maggi Hambling, which I found to be quite significant to the recent tsunami in Japan. A beautiful portrayal of such a destructive and devestating natural event, showing the force and motion of the sea.
