Craig Wylie, until March 27, Plus One Gallery, London

Craig Wylie: Suns Silence Stopped, at Plus One Gallery is an exhibition worth going to see if you can. Wylie won the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery, London in 2008. In this exhibition Wylie is presenting a series of head paintings based upon people he knows.

Craig Wylie paints from his own photographs, the process involving working directly from a laptop screen, he combines both the incidental light of photography and the actual light passing through the images he works from, giving his paintings an unusual depth and clarity of light and colour.
