Don’t get me wrong, there was some seriously good work at the 2012 Spike Open at Spike Island (home to 70 artists in low-cost studios), but I was distracted by the variety of paint-splattered and well-used chairs/ sofas/stools in the studios which seemed to have a personality of their own. If you are in Bristol before 17 June I recommend the The Artists’ Postcard Show at Spike. Fine work (and chairs) indeed.
