The Top 5 Exhibitions to see in Mayfair & Fitzrovia in September

Tabish Khan the @LondonArtCritic picks his exhibitions to see in Mayfair & Fitzrovia September. Each one comes with a concise review to help you decide whether it’s for you. Those looking for more art should see last week’s top 5 exhibitions – where all but one remains open to visit.

Mandy El-Sayegh: Interiors @ Thaddaeus Ropac
Navigate around tactile sheets of hanging latex and enter a room where paintings and the floor contain details of maps and grids but are obscured by white paint, before heading upstairs to a space that draws inspiration from Sigmund Freud’s waiting room – couch included. It’s an immersive painting paradise packed with references to examine. Until 30 September.

Ben Jamie: Realm @ Castor
Chunky muscular figures, blocky textured landscapes. There’s a great rugged feel to Ben Jamie’s paintings – like a grittier William Blake. His works draw on the concept of a hero’s journey and they definitely have the feel of a fantasy novel told through paintings. Until 30 September.

Keita Miyazaki: Excess of Desire @ Rosenfeld
Brightly coloured origami melds into and contrasts with the metal and bronze in the sculpture of Keita Miyazaki. They are beautiful objects and also a contrast of materials that should feel at odds yet in his hands come together as if they’ve always belonged together. Until 30 September.

Letha Wilson: Fields of Vision @ Grimm
Landscapes break free of their frames and bend out to meet us, or are arranged freestanding so we get to see their contours – whether that be alone, in a collage or pierced through by a rod or other landscapes. By sitting between photography and sculpture her work brings us closer to the reality of what these places are really like. Until 30 September.

Patrick Hughes: Reverspective at Alon Zakaim Fine Art
Buildings appear to move depending on what angle you view the painting and a Brillo box appears to hover in mid-air. These brilliant optical illusions are made through skilful painting and reversing perspectives, and Patrick Hughes is the master of it – working references to art history into his pieces. Until 29 September.

When I first met Andy Wicks, he was an artist (and I liked his work). But his role arranging artist-run pop-ups led him to morph towards gallerist, and Castor Projects was born in 2016.
