Art, sculpture and interesting things

Here are a few more lovely and/or odd things seen at Masterpiece London. 
The lovely folk/naive art on Robert Young Antiques I was particularly taken with this fine Noah's Ark Toy collection and this lovely terrier.
Birds of feather stick together and they also freak my husband out. I'd love to see his reaction to Polly Morgan's taxidermy telephone - tweet tweet. 
Another macabre sculpture by Polly Morgan which involves a taxidermy fox being attacked by an octopus and birds. 
Marble sculpture (on left) by Elizabeth Turk from £90,000 to £260,000 exhibited by Hirsch and Adler The statues on plinths at the Galerie Chenel stand
This portrait is captivating and the colours in the abstract were absolutely up my street. I'd have happily had either of these to take home.
 Gordon Watson's stand
The picture of the right again of birds was fascinating and definitely made me feel uncomfortable although the "nest like" framing was inspired (Peter Petrou). Unfortunately the pictures didn't come out well but I was quite taken withe the Mullany Religious pieces.

Horsey, Horsey - Masterpiece London 2014

Horsey is a favourite word of my son’s at the moment and I think its mine too after yesterday’s visit to Masterpiece London. My favourite stand by a mile was Sladmore’s exhibition by the artist Nic Fiddian-Green. Nic is famous for his glorious oversized sculptures of horse’s heads with probably his most famous being the 30ft Still Water at Marble Arch.

The stand was a recreation of Nic’s studio in Surrey including the “real life” rubble and detritus that goes along with a personal and creative space. You know, the odd 13 amp fuse, torn bits of newpapers, tacks and a half eaten apple – this was not a clinical portrayal of his space but an artfully recreated unstudied space. Nic seemed delighted that we were just as happy looking at the tacks as his impossibly beautiful sculptures.

Is it a Masterpiece?

Tomorrow is the start of the Masterpiece London Art fair in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. I’m looking forward to seeing the extravagant items on offer not least as each item at the fair is individually vetted by 26 committees of independent experts and specialists before the event opens. Below are a few items from 1stdibs participating galleries and Linley that have caught my eye.
