gary hume at jerwood gallery hastings

The jerwood is a beautiful small kunsthalle with architecture that works, using wonderful views of the sea and natural light. Tate modern take a lesson. The little permanent collection of british stuff like sickert, spencer, gertler and more minor masters is a real joy and just what you want by the seaside, some less seen but arresting paintings with which to ignite inspiration. The Gary Hume show is rubbish, get over the gloss paint already and adding a bit of hair, although sligtly peppier, doesn't really cut it for the filled in outline man. The very poorman's alex katz.

Behind the jerwood fisherman sell fresh off the boat fish, not at extortionate prices. And the sun shines and you can bbq it on the beach and swim in the sea. A middle class idyll is born until the rain comes again. The British seaside actually nice. Hurrah!
