"Painting is a visual phenomena and my work subscribes quite faithfully to this. It has no narrative as such, being abstract, and as far as the viewer is concerned it is made to be enjoyable to look at. I don't seek to deliver messages through my work because I want it to be considered for what it is on an immediate, physical, tangible level, not what it may or may not be saying or doing." We sit down with Second Floor artist in residence Tom Wilmott about his exhibition ‘Ladders of life we scale merrily, move mysteriously around’.

“I Will Be Complete” is a memoir written by Glen David Gold for Glen David Gold. It’s a journey that he’s taking for his own good, to make sense of himself. Indulgent in length, it feels as if you are listening to a first draft of a novel as it’s being written, on that one moment, being born right there and then. It’s enchanting and addictive.

Theatre Critic Mark Shenton takes a look at the pressure and demand of theatres on Broadway, along with this summers new openings on both sides of the Atlantic.
