Stuart Pearson WrightWho says portraiture is dead? If you’ve had enough of the yearly competition at the National Portrait Gallery, maybe it’s time to take a chance on Stuart Pearson Wright’s unforgiving eye, showing at London’s Riflemaker Gallery through February 15. This heritage space with leaning walls, rickety staircase and lived-in feel could be the perfect venue for edgy artists like Wright to show off their idea of beauty to a technologically-obsessed culture. The paintings, while firmly grounded in 2012 and a world of instant stardom, always hark back to dark classical canvases, and they certainly provoke the continuation of myth.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
