“I want to paint the air that surrounds the bridge, the house, the boat...”

The current National Gallery exhibition, “Monet & Architecture,” is an original way of looking at the career of one of the greatest artists in history. Monet created many artworks that depicted buildings in various cities and villages. Featuring 75 artworks, the exhibition features both famous and little known masterpieces that show different architectural types in Normandy, Paris, Venice and London – all of which were important places of Monet’s life.

The exhibition runs until July 29, at the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN

New York-based artist Signe Pierce is famous for her projector paintings where she uses surroundings, the camera and her body to create a work of art. The artist’s installation, “Metamirrorism,” at the Annka Kultys Gallery emphasizes Pierce’s point of view that “reality is a medium,” presenting the gallery’s space as a virtual abstraction. Moreover, each visitor becomes a central point in the installation – the necessary condition for Metamirrorism.

The exhibition runs until April 28, at the Annka Kultys Gallery, 472 Hackney Road | Unit 3, 1st Floor | London E2 9EQ
