Saad Qureshi's Disappearing in Yesterday opened on 27 October. The show is dominated by Via Dolorosa and Uneasy Landscape, large works in white gloss, with pencil and Urdu newspaper interventions, astonishingly fresh and unusual additions to contemporary art executed with great skill and feeling. Several ink drawings on buff Chinese paper are clearly very personal pieces which hark to his past (one is reminiscent of his sculpture at Aicon's Wound show), a triptych in miniature is observed in fine detail, and two works on suede are an interesting subversion of the painting medium, especially the miniature On The Way which, alone on one wall, cannot but attract the eye from the far end of the gallery. A superbly and deceptively simple curation and one of Aicon Gallery's finer shows.
