George Shaw 'Plays For England...'

It looks like artist George Shaw has been enjoying himself. This week saw the opening of his exhibition at the National Gallery in London, in the Sunley Room, ‘My Back To Nature’. It’s a culmination of his work there as the Artist-in-Residence over the last two and a half years. I can’t wait to see what he’s done in response to the collection, which is the basic remit of the residency when artists are invited to participate in the programme. These few images and this link to a review in The Guardian certainly whet the artistic appetite though….
