Wandering around the RA Summer Exhibition Mother began to question why I didn't buy anything here or anywhere else for that matter since in the past I have bought original art. The art I own I bought for the evocative memories they unlocked but nothing here really pressed any of my buttons, certainly not in the same way a COS dress would, is that too sad? No, I just didn't see much I liked. These painting however I would buy, they really really hit the spot for me, abstraction in its purist form, untainted by the influence of anything other than a sense of place and history. I love them.
