Hey, WidowCranky here.  Have you ever looked at a piece of art, or watched a film or read a book and wanted some more detail on it?  Well that is what this blog is all about.

I started writing this blog after some encouragement from a friend, to try and bring appreciation of art and different genres of media down to a level which is easy to understand.

All too often I find that art galleries, books and documentaries assume a certain level of knowledge.  Also I crave detail, I want the stories behind what I am seeing, and generally that is not what is talked about.

I will admit it, art dominates this blog, but it is what I am passionate about.  I love seeing how artist express themselves and depict what they are seeing.  Their style and technique adding to the overall feel to their finished piece.

I also love how media, from the past and present dominates our culture and I try and link this in to the articles that you see.

You can also find articles from me on the Parkstone International Blog where I write about art and how it fits in with today’s society.

I am also a keen amateur photographer, so occasionally you will see some posts with photos I have taken.

Art and media is very much a subjective business, so when you are reading any of the articles, please remember that these are simply my opinions based on the research and knowledge I hold.  I am always up for a peaceful debate as I love to hear the opinion’s of others and I welcome the interaction with other like minded people.

So, that’s it, in a nutshell.  Thanks for visiting.

  1. You have an interesting taste in art. Somewhat different from my own but in some places we hit on harmonious notes. Looking forward to reading more of your site, especially your reviews on films. Lots of love, JY
