Zaha finds silver lining in art show

Zaha Hadid will be exhibiting her Silver Paintings for the first time in the UK at Kenny Schachter's ROVE gallery in London.

The images, which are digitally generated then photographed, feature a number of her schemes including the Guggenheim Museum in Taichung (main picture).

The 2m-high mirror-like panels are hand finished in a range of paints, inks and lacquers to create a 'gradual intersection between reflectivity and opacity'.

According to a spokesman, the paintings act as 'a real-time report' or 'a page in the diary of Zaha Hadid's exquisite architecture'.

It is not the first time the Iraqi-born architect has teamed up with American art dealer Schachter.

Hadid is also working on a new space for Schachter in Hoxton Square, east London which, if it runs to schedule, will be her first completed project in the capital.

The Silver Paintings exhibition runs from 22 October to 26 November.
