although i subscribe to quite a lot of arts newsletters – i’ve been pretty switched off to the international contemporary art scene of late – it’s either work by people i already know and love or if i like it, it probably looks pretty much like the the work i already love better, but had a couple of nice surprises looking at the portfolios of the artists at this gallery:
particularly Dorothea Tanning and Klara Kristalova.
i think you can see why.
i spend so much time in the company of animals i kind of feel half dog/horse and especially get the feeling the dog thinks he’s half human.
that’s the essence of what i want to get across with the little paintings i’ve been doing.
and then there was n o t t i n g h a m on saturday.
its been a really good few days with a trip to http://www.nottinghamcontemporary.org/ which i love for its perfect size (just enough contemporary artwork to inspire but not bore the rest of the family) and for being really close to http://www.delilahfinefoods.co.uk/ where we all gorged ourselves on delicious food. i bought http://turpsbanana.com/ and was delighted when j. flicked through it and said that it reminded him of my work! it feels nice to have a context…
