It is enormously ambitious – attracting a lot of attention from possible corporates – but also richly ambiguous and poetic too. Meanwhile around the walls there’s a typically rich mix of painting and photography, my eye being particularly caught by Clare McDonald’s graphite, pen and ink drawings of sycamore and ash seedlings, arranged either in strict formal squares or random abstract patterns, in either case so quietly and intensely observed as to attract the eye with an almost magnetic force. Also Adrian Hemming, whose forceful landscapes and intensely coloured little watercolours, revealed an intensely personal vision. NU
