Chris Orr RA

I went to the opening of Chris Orr’s exhibition tonight, organised by Jill George in a small gallery off the Tottenham Court Road.   It was very nice to see his faintly satirical depiction of contemporary London in all its Hogarthian enormity, including Tate Modern from the west with the Shard only half built and the new Tate no more than a hole in the ground.   Also, Tower Bridge made even more fantastical and animate than it already is.   And the Isle of Dogs, all shown in meticulous but only half realistic detail.

    Chris is a brilliant artist. His satirical works about NYC are endlessly entertaining, exceptionaly clever and artistically inspiring. Thank you for sharing your experience of Chris’s opening. Farran
