Exhibition Review: Saatchi Online

Will Corwin, Saatchi Online, November 1, 2008

'Narrative painting is making a comeback - even if you need a degree in architecture to understand what is going on. This show of deft paintings at Rare gallery feature some of the more infamous projects of modernist architecture, in lush surroundings and bright sunshine and sometimes blue, sometimes blank skies (it varies within each painting). Much like the architecture it depicts, and caricatures, the theme is utopia. The images are markedly devoid of a human presence, which underlies the whole problem with utopias - they don't work if people are involved.'
