Newport Street Gallery
Posted on 09 October 2015
Yesterday saw the opening of the highly anticipated Damien Hirst Newport Street Gallery. Tucked in the leafy alcove of Lambeth, it was was definitely a design hunt well found.
Although none of Damien Hirst's, work was on display, John Hoyland's collection Power Stations did not disappoint. Reminiscent of Rothko's work, it was nice to see pops of colour at over 2 metres tall, dominating the blank canvas and providing landscapes across the space.
What really defined the space, was the attention to detail of the actual space, honest, linear and complimentary to any artists that may exhibit. The staircase in itself was a work of art, right down to the details of the bathroom signs.
Rumour has it Damien Hirst is working on a top secret collection, with his nearest and dearest having to sign non- disclosure agreements.... will this collection be exhibited at Newport Street Gallery, we will have to wait and see. John Hoyland's collection Power Stations in exhibiting until April.
