Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

27 September 2009

It has been a shiny reflective summer, what with Jeff Koons, and the Serpentine Summer Pavilion, all recorded on these pages.

Anish Kapoor’s show, now at the Royal Academy, London, is not just about shiny reflective surfaces it is also about wonder and wax and pigment, and overwhelming the space it inhabits. And yes we have the thundering cannons in the galleries that are not just firing blanks.

Get down there now, and then again because it is also kinetic. Red Wax flies and then crawls leaving it’s mark on the hallowed walls, and the marble and indeed the plaster ceiling, that once surrounded the finest work of Turner and Constable and Reynolds and Gainsborough.

Such fun but yes, also profound.
