Art Review: The Silent Art of Secrecy, Daniela Schönbächler

Beak Street's finest: The Riflemaker. Unsurprisingly enough, it hasn't changed its Soho location since the last review. It has changed the artwork on display in the main room on the ground floor though.

Daniela Schönbächler's exhibition is, to be frank, a bit hit and miss. We were unmoved by the big painted abstracts. We didn't loathe them, we didn't love them.

There, now on to the good stuff.

We did like the rest of her work. There were abstract paintings on glass on easels, so that they changed depending on what was behind them which were clever and effective. We really liked her blocks of glass. Consisting of thick panes of glass fused together, with each pane painted on, they looked like someone had stretched out an abstract painting.

We'd recommend nipping in if you are in town. The excellent Stardust exhibition by Liliane Lijn is still up stairs until the 5th of July as well.
