We've come across Jenny Pockley's hazy aerial landscapes in a previous show and we love how she captures the vibrancy and aesthetic beauty of our city. So we're glad to hear she's created a new body of work focusing on London, and that the images will be on display in an exhibition at Sarah Myerscough gallery.

Rather than simply representing contemporary London, Pockley's latest work looks at the historical weight of London including the damage it incurred in World War II. Her paintings capture the intensity and historical significance of those times, and her use of colour clearly draws inspiration from some of the great painters of London such as Turner and Monet.

As a preview of her upcoming show, we've put together an image gallery of six of the works that will be on display, but nothing will beat visiting the show once it's open.

Jenny Pockley: London's Story will be on at Sarah Myerscough gallery, 15-16 Brooks Mews, W1K 4DS from 24 September until 14 October. The gallery is open Monday to Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 12pm-3pm and entrance is free.
