Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

I have this fantasy that someone gives me a quarter of a million pounds and lets me loose in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. This year, the fantasy was particularly good, as the exhibition was the best I have seen in the five years I've been coming to the show. You can grab a peek here.

The theme of the 237th exhibition is multiple images and printmaking in all its manifestations. Some artists use woodcuts and etchings as well as newer technologies such as photography and video. One of the best parts of the exhibition is discovering new, fantastic artists - this year I fell in love with these images by Alessandro Gallo.
