The best thing I found was Craigie Aitchison, who I didn't know about before.
I like the sparseness his work.
And the fact that he doesn't layer paint, all the objects seem to be slotted into their own gap in the background.
Which help make the colours jump about.
Sadly he died in 2009. Bloomsbury auctions are selling off his estate and had a special room at the fair with some of his possessions alongside his work, which was a wonderful thing.
All the objects were laid out, and it was so nice to see how the objects fed into his work, sometimes very literally.
I thought this cupboard was brilliant, gloss pink with white accents and a red tassle - and best of all it was very badly painted, most heartening. Seeing the toot of inspiring people is a wonderful thing.
The sale happened yesterday, maybe I should have gone because some of the things had five hundred pound estimates on, and that's not much really . . .
