Having said this one show did make its mark with us here at Pipe. Observing I am Solitary at Beers. Lambert was a thoroughly engaging experience. The show includes photography, painting and sculpture. However unlike a lot of the shows in the galleries around this area the work fit together effectively around coherent ideas, and the production of artworks was of a recognizably high standard.

This experience then took on a variety of different individual forms which are displayed by the other artworks in the room. Joshua Bilton’s photographs held my attention and definitely communicate with Friend’s sculpture. Their ‘quirky’ imagery shows a figure who appears as a latter day explorer, with his equipment. However he looks like he may have come from a slightly different world (iii).

I am Solitary is a well curated group show, exhibiting the work of interesting artists. I found it a joy to experience this exhibition.
Thanks to all those involved, great work!!
