16th April to 27th April Gallery One & Gallery Two Vyner Street Gallery The painterly traditions of Milan and the Euston Road come together in the works of this bank-clerk turned artist. Erminio made film, sculpted, drew and was a prolific screen-printer and etcher, but most of all he thrived on paint. His reading of Marinetti and Bergson in his student days coloured a vision of a London, in which a sense of sexual liberation was also a powerful ingredient. Even at its most bucolic industry looms large in his work, the activities of the container port at Felixstowe forming the backdrop to more recent Essex coastal scenes. This exhibition is a small retrospective, a taster from a huge ouput, all achieved between the mid-1970s and his sudden death towards the end of last year.
