Alone in Berlin

When you have a friend who is as super talented as Hester Finch, you literally have to SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS because she is so amazing and I'm so proud of everything she has achieved. I already blogged about her here and I said I'd post details of her upcoming exhibition so here you are. 

As a career path, I think being an artist is up there with the toughest of them so I'm just beyond thrilled that Hester's incredible talent has led to this new exhibition "Alone in Berlin", her first with Jessica Carlisle in Knightsbridge.

This is an exhibition of new paintings which continues Hester's investigation into the psychological potential of painting, and takes a poetic and poignant journey through the darker realms of the human experience.

The reason I love art, as I'm sure many do, is the connection you make. Art, real amazing art, makes us stop dead in our tracks and look, think and feel way more deeply than we do on a daily basis. Most of my days are filled with a blur of activity as I'm sure yours are too. Visiting an exhibition like this is almost therapeutic in its ability to refresh and invigorate the mind and the senses - like a mind spa, if you will. So, if you've had one of those weeks and you live in/near London, pop over to 83 Kinnerton Street in Knightsbridge and enjoy this incredible showcase. All details below. And for those we don't live in London, you can read more / see more here.
