Blue Crow Gallery: Mary Wong opening

There was a good turnout at Jodi Wheeler’s Blue Crow Gallery in the Bazaar on Saturday night, for the opening of Mary Wong‘s show of recent romantic landscapes.

Wong works in oil, laid on thickly and expressively … not wispy gradations of paint often thought of as “romantic”. Why not? Romantics aren’t necessarily weak and delicate, are they? Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, didn’t she?

Mary Wong’s exhibition continues until November 30th.
