We had arranged to see Romilly’s exhibition at Make Hauser and Wirth Somerset in Bruton, a great treat as well as definitely work for her, before we are once more immured as a result of Tier 3.
I should know the difference between seeing work on the dining room table and seeing it in a proper gallery setting, beautifully displayed, with quotations from Edmund de Waal and Marina Warner, which I meant to photograph, but didn’t.
Installation is all:-
I particularly like the red dot !

These are very fine and Romilly is to be congratulated.
I have 2 thoughts to share.
I have recently been, literally, “selling off the family silver”..various sets of immaculate mainly Scottish engraved 18th century silver forks and spoons. Naively I had never thought why there were no knives, so enquired. The knives were never or rarely made of silver so sadly did not survive intact. Only a few handles remain.
I am also interested in Charles mention of the lovely Red Dot.
Before seeing the dot i felt these works were making a bold statement..Having now seen the dot, I see it as a literary full stop to that statement.
Mind you, i am still working on exactly what the statement is..!
Seasons greetings to you all and may 2021 bring us closer to Works of Art.
Dear Piers, Let me know when you’ve discovered. For me, they are statements of free and independent creative endeavour during COVID, but they may predate COVID. Charles
