Mayfair Art Weekend offered a sneak preview at Waddington Gallery in Cork Street of its forthcoming exhibition called Vortex of abstract works by the French artist Fabienne Verdier. They are all large colourful canvasses with giant swirling shapes said to be inspired by listening to arias from Mozart operas. Visitors are invited to listen to recordings of the said arias. Had I been asked what music might have inspired the artwork I would have guessed ‘Eight Lines’ by Steve Reich.

We live in a strange world. Today in London we have had brilliant sunshine and spring shrubs have burst into colour, yet the country - indeed the world - is grappling with one of the greatest challenges in living memory and everything is closed. March is a month linked with madness, and we seem to have it in droves in all sorts of different ways. And then of course there is the 'Mad March Hare', a mythological creature apparently linked to the fact that hares see spring as a time for new adventures and for mating. How appropriate therefore that Barry Flanagan's characteristicly sprightly, athletic, energetic hares are, behind closed doors, bouncing about in Mayfair in his latest exhibition 'Alchemy of the Theatre' which, like galleries across London, is closed but now available on-line. Flanagan (1941-2009) has been such a prominent figure of British sculpture that it is difficult to appreciate that he died 13 years ago, his work still feels so energetic, so fresh and so contemporary. No-one has quite replaced his unique theatrical style with hares leaping, dancing, boxing, relaxing and otherwise enjoying life. Here at 'Alchemy of the Times' at Waddington Custot there were also drawings, paintings and other works in other media, revealing the versatility of the artist and reminding us of what a talent we have lost. One of the ongoing series of exhibitions at Waddington Custot, I am always fascinated about the different ways in which they use and partition the space and open or close the views through the windows to the street outside.

I always enjoy the exhibitions at Waddington Custot. They are varied and I love the way that the art connects out with the street outside. The current exhibition reflects current concerns with the environment and with what the activities of humans is doing to the natural world, with a series of photographs by Nick Brandt, where he has taken photographs in the same places in Kenya, one when the native animals were free to roam, the other with natives from nearby towns and villages, set against a variety of structures from the modern world - bridges, construction sites and petrol stations. Taken a few weeks apart, and mainly at night, then joined together, they ask the question about why man and the natural world cannot co-exist.

A curious gallery. It's always a challenge to know whether the galleries in this area are serious, or gently seeing what they can get away with - and I fear this falls into the latter category. But that's the thing about art - it is very much down to your eye, and how well that matches with the gallery curator. So, on balance, I'd recommend keeping an open mind about what they are showing, but I fear it is now drifting on it's historic reputation.

Waddington - or as it is now known - Waddington Custot - Gallery is one of London's longest established commercial galleries. It is bravely clinging on in Cork Street, which used to be the very epicentre of London's commercial art market, until, that is, its heart was ripped out by developers leading to the closure and relocation of many galleries. Waddingtons has a stable of artists reading like a roll-call of 20th century British art, including Craigie Aitchison, Peter Blake, Patrick Heron, Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson. Three are European and American greats as well, firvexample, Josef Albers and Robert Rauschenberg. Their most recent exhibition was of works by Patrick Caufield.
