Is there anything better to do on a rainy Sunday than wearing a comfortable, cosy coat and looking at art? I decided to visit the current exhibition of Guyana-born British artist Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi.
Standing before the imposing presence of Bowling’s monumental, delicately worked, and tactile paintings, I am fascinated by the technique and colours of his paintings. References to the natural world evoke reflections on the vernacular and the post-industrial, the mythical and the classical, the literary and the spatial.
Jasmin mixes bright yellow and deep red with her camel teddy coat by Jil Sander. Use primary colours to brighten up a grey day and still feel casually comfortable. Trainers by Isabel Marant, Socks by Burlington, earrings by Céline.
“Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi” can be seen at Haus der Kunst, Munich, until 7 January 2018.
