I was actually going to start this one with a rant about the gallery closing too early for me to see the show, but i) I can't always be rantin' and ii) Stephen Friedman apologised very sweetly and asked me to come back so I'll be nice.

Besides, Ged Quinn really is an exceptional piece of an artist painting lush summery landscapes that would make a Robert Zünd jealous and mixing them up with religious symbolism, romantic Arcadian decay and strange extra-dimensional cubist architectures.

A must-see for Londoners.
