Geometry and optimism from south London

I have been captured by the dynamic geometry and the warm optimism of Jaime Gili's paintings since I first saw them at Saatchi Gallery in 2010.  So when I was invited to visit Jaime's studio during my recent trip to London, I was totally thrilled.  Thank you, Jaime, for having me and showing me the canvases that I haven't seen before.  It's a real treat.  I look forward to your new shows in future.  A show in Toronto someday(?) would be a blast.

Ramsden's asymmetric forms

I remember seeing Mary Ramsden's paintings at Royal Academy Schools' annual Premiums show two years ago.  It is nice to see her recent works at the group exhibition New Order II: British Art Today.  Ramsden at  Saatchi Gallery, London 2014:

Hughes's contemporary watercolours

Simon Hughes is one of the very few contemporary artists around who use the medium of watercolour with non-traditional expressions.  From his current solo exhibition The Central Region at Arsenal Toronto's Division Gallery:
