Until Friday 27 March

Following on from what Mahler wrote musically in his Das  Lied von der Erde, the scent of white terracotta that fills Josh Lilley's Fitzrovia gallery is indeed one of the 'songs of the earth'.

The artist in this show is Italian master sculptor and ceramicist Benedetto Pietromarchi using terracotta, ceramic and metal overlay to show his love of nature, birds in particular: he calls them Guardians.

Here is Pietromarchi's Stork (2020) shot from behind to show the modelling of the bird's wings as it looks out in the early evening of a quietening London.
