New paintings finished this week. Time, place, memory, colour and light. A still frame, a captured moment.They will be shown from 10th – 12th September at Gravelly Barn.
So much painting in the last month, every square inch of our flat and just one lovely canvas. This one forms the beginning of my summer projects. This painting and many more will be exhibited next weekend at the Gravelly Barn Art Show in Braughing, Hertfordshire.
This week in the process of writing lectures I have rediscovered two favourite things. The first is Otto Runge’s Farbenkugel (colour sphere, see above) and the second is Alexander Calder’s circus, courtesy of the ever delightful www.ubu.com. It is so great to revisit these things that have inspired me before. There is a simplicity to both of them which I find just lovely.
I recently went to an exhibition of the work of Sebastian Romo, what a delight it was and filled with a certain level of familiarity. His work included collages of unfolded boxes, a series of mutoscopes, collections of coloured squares and cut-out paper structures. It was rather like walking into a gallery of my own imagined and completed projects and a testament to how great it is to realise one’s mad schemes.
