Flowers can also be seen on the There is a very strong sense – a zeitgeist almost – that the ‘old’ London, the one we all thought we knew – may be about to disappear before our eyes, swept away by a tidal wave of investment super high rises and rampant office development. Exhibitions, books and blogs are everywhere busy documenting what’s left; thoughts all set in motion by James MacKinnon’s superb paintings currently at The Millinery Works , and dominated, to my mind, by his intensely atmospheric small paintings of East End backwaters. Taking his cue from the miraculous Algernon Newton’s dictum “a gasometer can make as beautiful a picture as a palace on the Grand Canal” MacKinnon’s loving, humanist eye transforms scruffy East End parks and tower blocks into a vision of serenity and human dignity. Here London lives, again. N U THUMB nail James MacKinnon ‘Back Lane, Hampstead’
