Back to basics

Having been to the opening view of Whitney Mcveigh's new exhibition at the A Foundation gallery last week, it was refreshing to see an artist going back to basics in the age of digital.

The American-born artist, now based in London, only uses monochrome and basic materials, doing away with the brush in a manner that can't help remind you of Jackson Pollock.

It's the kind of art you can stare at for hours - leaving you unconsciously searching for the human form in the different shapes.
