Gone – Kara Walker

I have done quite a few articles recently about how humanity and nature intertwine, potentially making me seem a bit "mother earthish".  I am definitely not that, sure I like to think that the world could be a harmonious place, where nature and humans skip along hand in hand, nobody hunts endangered animals, and we...

Film – Lawrence of Arabia

I was never a huge film fan growing up, in fact I would read a book over watching a film 9 times out of 10, it was only as I got older that I started to really get in to film culture.  Now this has its ups and downs... the ups are that I read... Continue Reading →

Napoleon Crossing the Alps – Jacques-Louis David

I know I have been incredibly quiet over the last month, but hopefully you will appreciate why.  I have been off on my travels and one of the stops was to see the new Louvre in Abu Dhabi.  This was one of the most amazing experiences which has inspired me greatly and given me a...

St. Valentine…

Today is the day when hallmark are rubbing their hands together as people everywhere exchange cards, declaring that today they love each other more than any other day of the year, but actually the really St. Valentine is a far stretch from the patron saint of love that you might believe that he is. I... Continue Reading →

Poppies – Wave and Weeping Window – Cummins and Piper

As we approach the 11th November, a time for remembrance and to show a mark of respect, we wear poppies as a symbol of the lives lost as these were the flowers which grew on the battlefields once the bloodshed had ceased. In 2014, a wave of ceramic poppies adorned the Tower of London, tumbling... Continue Reading →

A little push

Good morning you lovely people... I’m out looking for a little push from you all. I have started writing articles for an art publishing website and I would really appreciate it if you guys could take a look, share it, follow it... what ever you want to do. I would be eternally grateful and it... Continue Reading →

The raft of the Medusa – Théodore Géricault

Everyone has their bad days, the 2nd of July 1816 was a particularly bad day for Viscount Hugues Duroy de Chaumereys. Little did he know that when he was appointed captain of the frigate Méduse would he be sending so many people to their deaths. Before I writing about the painting today, I’m going to... Continue Reading →

Tulpa Series – Mars-1

I’ve recently been watching Twin peaks the return. Now if the original series wasn’t bizarre enough, this revamp is seriously far out if you’re not on David Lynch’s wave length. Interestingly, it all seems to revolve around the theory of a Tulpa which is a mystical theory where manifestations can be created by thought forms... Continue Reading →

Arachne’s Punishment – Gustave Doré

Leviticus and Deuteronomy, they are funny old books aren’t they, full of things that will get you a one way ticket to eternal punishment. Some things are so inconsequential in today’s views too....like don’t eat shellfish, or don’t wear mixed textiles. Which is surprising for a book where the theme is to love thy neighbour,... Continue Reading →

Natural History Museum (Rotterdam)

Next door to the Kunsthall, is a smaller building which looks a little like a school. It has paper cut outs of bones in the widow, and from the road side, could easily be mistake for a child play centre. I only knew it wasn't, because I had read that there was a small natural... Continue Reading →

The ugly duchess – Quinten Massys

I know what you're thinking, why are you posting this seemingly grotesque old women. She looks a bit like Jack Whitehall's dad in drag. Well I guess this is the picture that introduced me to my appreciation of art. Massys meticulous painting of this less than blessed woman, is so lovingly produced that the viewer... Continue Reading →

Tower of London

I like a bit of bloody history. Not that I would ever have wanted to be hung, drawn and quartered, or put in the stocks, but I find it really interesting how our ancestors lived, behaved and dealt with conflicts. The Tower of London is steeped in history, more that I could write here, or... Continue Reading →

The Cutty Sark

Nestled in the middle of Greenwich is the magnificent clipper ship the Cutty Sark. World renowned for being the fastest clipper to sail the seas, it is now a museum for the public to view just what it was like to be aboard this stunning vessel.Starting on the bottom deck of the boat, you can...

The Imperial War Museum – London

The Imperial war museum (IWM) is not far from the Elephant and Castle. Set back from the road there is a beautiful park surrounding it, with the Tibetan peace garden off to one side. As you walk in, it's hard not to notice the two ship cannons that dominate the lead up to the entrance.As... Continue Reading →

Dunkirk

I will readily admit I waited until I had heard some feedback before I went to see this film. This was for a couple of reasons...firstly I really hate war films which incorporate a farcical love story which has been orchestrated just to tug at your heart strings a little bit more, it's generally unneeded,... Continue Reading →

Andromeda – Paul Gustave Doré

As I said yesterday, my visit to the London planetarium inspired me to chat about the story behind some of the constellations that you can currently see in the nights sky. As we all know, I love a bit of Greek mythology and this nestles beautifully between the world of science and myth.Right now, in... Continue Reading →

Man proposes, God disposes – Edwin Landseer

This weekend, I headed over to Greenwich, with thoughts of going to the planetarium, and possibly relaying the story of Andromeda to you (which will still happen, but probably tomorrow when I find some fitting art work...). What I hadn't realised before I went was how close the maritime museum was. Now I have a... Continue Reading →
