Anthony Easton "The Farm Show", Remedy Cafe

Taken near Wembley, the artist describes the works as "semi-abstract" of his usual observational style. Unfamiliar with his previous work, the pieces staggering up the side of the stairs is clearly from a foreign eye to the rural farmland. Only, the mystery eluded to in each photograph does not quite reach out to stop you and make you appreciate the beautiful simplicities. A handful of farm eggs, close markings of fur and hide, the wild and intersecting slabs of 2X4, a cow staring closely into the camera; the subjects are all there, but the context is missing.
The small showing has literally framed itself as a rural exhibit by the looks of their handmade farmhouse frames, but the novelty of rural life would benefit from further investigation.
