Earlier this month, after visiting Essence of Edo-Tokyo at ICN, I decided to take the little journey from my old London home in Bethnal Green down Roman Road to check out one of the most daring and fascinating group shows of the year: Savant – curated by Joe Becker at High Roller Society. I posted about it here.

I left deeply impressed by the oeuvres of Richard Stipl, Peggy Kouroumalos and particularly Rory Dean - whose paintings I expected to be much larger - and it became apparent that the one thing that all the featured artists had in common was a very obsessive-compulsive joyful drive to create. You could almost touch their collective exuberant imagination and the electric heat of their synapses during the creation of this show. And that’s a very rare thing to feel at a group show – so chapeau to Joe for putting this show together and selecting such a great bunch of fellow artists.

Also massive thanks to Jennifer Moran who runs High Roller for taking the time – on Guy Fawkes Night, no less – to show me around the exhibition, dig out secret works from the High Roller treasure trove and for discussing techniques, misunderstood artists, monsters and… dentures.

More of this kind of stuff in London please!

Savant runs until November 27.
