The area
Neighborhood: Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.

Carousel or Merry-Go-Round
Mar 2019 • Solo
Hay Hill Gallery was not in evidence. Was it ever here in the first place as Hay Hill is in Mayfair not Fitzrovia? Why is it now called Carousel Next Door pointing to a next door when the next door is not an art gallery? What is this exhibition of photographs of chefs’ hands doing in this gallery when it is advertised online as being exhibited in any number of other places? And why was the gallery closed today without explanation with only a workman in evidence who sneaked out of a cupboard then it of the tradesmens’ back entrance in order to avoid me and my ringing of the doorbell altogether? Will my next exhibition be of photographs of disappearing workmen’s hands on gallery back doors?

Iraqi art in London
Mar 2015 • Solo
Hani Mazhar, Ali Jabbar and Ala Bashir are Iraqi artists who live in the UK. In different ways they have experienced some of the upheavals in their country, most notably Ala Bashir, who was intimately caught up in Saddam Hussein's regime, not least as the dictator's physician when he was also the country's leading plastic surgeon as well as, arguably, its leading artist. The location is a stylish gallery on Baker Street and the ground level space is particularly open with lots of natural light. The large downstairs room was used to exhibit Hani Mazhar and Ali Jabbar and while they differ, their paintings differ markedly from Ala Bashir's in being full of mostly representational shapes and very colourful, whereas Bashir's are austere and directly focused on, usually, a single object, a chair. A few of Mazhar's works reference Iraq (obviously, "Baghdad" and the triptych, "Lament for Mesopotamia") but, more often they are conceptual but within a figurative style. Ali Jabbar seems to go out of his way not to be anchored, though "I Don't Belong to any World" is just one work that gestures towards a loss of identity.

Ala Bashir's theme of chairs is - like some of the objects - twisted and twisted again to wring out the meanings of this ubiquitous piece of furniture. Some cannot but evoke torture and pain, notably "Blue Shirt", and one wonders what horrors the artist/surgeon witnessed up to 2003. However, these works from 2010 onwards are at more of a distance from the truly frightening works from earlier in his distinguished career. What comes across is that whereas chairs have often been distorted in modern art, to the point that one cannot imagine being able to sit upon them or only in a dream, the distortion in Bashir's chairs, whether they are twisted in on themselves or fuse into a human body or body parts, points to an internal struggle within some of the chairs. As a commercial gallery, the Hay Hill hasn't produced a catalogue of the exhibition, though there is a one-page handout on each artist, as well as a price-list.
