Inside the RA Summer Exhibition 2011

On a rainy Sunday in London, train cancellations meant a 35-minute journey took 3 hours but I finally arrived at the Royal Academy!   Inside the art washed away the world and the bursts of colour surrounding me comforted my psyche.  

Muted grey walls brought the shapes and colours alive...
