Jost Munster at Tintype

Jost Munster at Tintype

Popped in to Tintype at the weekend to see Jost Munster ‘Together for Now’.  Lovely show of small  works plus two installation pieces (my favourite works in the show - don't miss the one hanging behind the gallery desk).   The gallery describes Munster’s foremost concern as the ‘how’ of making work, how to create the illusion of space, how much or how little is needed to sustain the space that frames a work, in my view seen to best advantage in the delicate installation of bamboo bandaged with strips of old paintings.  Kicking myself that I missed the group show ‘Limber – Spatial Painting Practices’ that the artist co-curated (with Cherry Smyth) last year in Canterbury and Rouen.    Tintype recently moved from Clerkenwell to Essex Road, not far from Islington Green, so anyone going to the London Art Fair this week take the opportunity to see this show - its only a couple of minutes walk away (Tintype open Wed-Sat).
