Simon Ling, Gravity’s Garden, 2003 (oil on canvas)

I saw this picture in the April issue of Frieze. The artist draws out a cartoon of the final painting in fluorescent orange, and traces of this colour show through in the final image, adding a vital luminescence.

Knowledge Is Power

Walking in the Spring sunshine today, I was listening to this song on my headphones. I honed in on the low harmony in the chorus, which I’m not sure I’ve ever done before, and it felt revelatory. It also made me feel lucky to have seen and heard Elizabeth Fraser sing live in Bath a couple of years ago. The memory is slight now, but this music revives that time and place.
