surreal spaces

Today we went into Bath and caught the last day of an exhibition of works by Philip Bouchard entitled Surreal Spaces, and also met the artist, which was nice. His works are wonderfully surreal and beautifully executed, placing familiar buildings in imaginary landscapes reminiscent of Claude Lorrain. One of his sketches reminded me of the work of Paul Delvaux, and another of a painting called Rivières Tièdes by Ithell Colquhoun (though he wasn't familiar with her work), and there were occasional references to other surrealists as well.
