Another trundle to Penzance and the The Newlyn Art Gallery for the Shezad Dawood exhibition.
British artist Shezad Dawood (b1974) works across media in film, painting and light sculpture. His Indian and Pakistani roots have inspired a broad mapping within his practice, remixing various artistic traditions, and recalling influences as diverse as cosmology, science fiction and Sufism.
I must admit I thought this was going to be a load of old tosh, but I really enjoyed it. So forget all the Art Wank, go along and enjoy. To be fair to the Gallery, their Art Wank quotient is low, unlike the Tate St Ives who score a 10/10!!
  
I can highly recommend the gallery itself. The coffee shop at the back has an amazing view overlooking the sea and the various rooms are light and airy. Unlike most ‘stuck up your arse’ galleries, they have no problem with you taking pictures inside. The whole ambiance is one of peace and tranquility. If you do want the Art Wank, then you’ll find lots of great books in their shop.
