Ian McKeever: Henge I (image from here)
Powerful as his work on paper is, Ian McKeever's pieces have sometimes been lost to me amongst the crush. So now I make a point of seeking them out. This is usually most rewarding, and especially so this year. Henge I excited so many reactions and thoughts, not least because of all my thinking about prehistoric sites - most recently Callanish of course. It is a lithographic print, but once I had seen the three pieces entitled ... And The Sky Dreamt It Was The Sea a train of thought about density was set off.

I am also a fan of Tony Bevan's expressive lines, and this year it was an architectural drawing which attracted my attention.

I was delighted to see one of Paul Furneaux's woodblock print sculptures. I just love the elegant combination of three dimensions and that watercolour finish.

There were many more individual pieces which I liked, but the last piece, on exiting the exhibition is a film installation by Isaac Julien - a beautiful, powerful, political work. It is in a class of its own. That really makes one think.
