Cupid’s Lie – Damien Hirst

We all know the image of the chubby cherub.  The one with the bow and arrow that can spark love in an instant.  The image is used every February on cards that we send as a hallmark tradition to tell that special person that we love them more on that one day than any other,... Continue Reading →

The Doll – Hans Bellmer

Not all art is stunningly beautiful. Some is a direct reaction to things that are happening to, or around the artist. Some of these can sit very uncomfortably with the audience, yet they can still appreciate the message that the artist is trying to give. In the case of Bellmer’s ‘The Doll’, the initial reaction...

Prière de toucher – Marcel Duchamp

The human body is beautiful, in all its many shapes and sizes, gender and colour, so why is it in art we are forced to admire from a distance? So many paintings through the ages show people frolicking in their birthday suits which we as the view are forced to view from a safe distance... Continue Reading →

Tree and Bags – Atelier Van Lieshout

Trees can be really beautiful and equally really creepy. If you've ever walked in a forest at dusk or just down a tree lines street, you'll know the odd shadows that they create and the feelings of unknowing that they can present. Anything could be hiding in or behind the trees. Also historically trees have... Continue Reading →

Wetin You Go Do? – Otobong Nkanga

Yesterday was Saturday...hopefully you all knew that and I'm not breaking some exciting news there, but what that means to me is...it's my day of the week to go and break the monotony of working life and get out and explore. The Tate Modern was my destination yesterday. I've not been since they had the... Continue Reading →

I'm going to start with St. Petersburg and then sneak a few blogs in here and there about the things I saw during this great holiday.The Hermitage... this is made up of 5 buildings, the main one being...

Expansion – Paige Bradley

We all feel confined at times, either from our own abilities, situations we are in, fear of the unknown, fear of the known...the list is endless.  Society dictates that we should all fit into neat little boxes which attain neat little labels, for example, I am a white, 30 something, hetrosexual female, I am a...

Icarus book sculpture – Wetcanvas

There are some horrendously clever and talented people out there. I really love this book sculpture, although I do think it would be a bugger to dust. Wetcanvas can be found on deviant art, and creates stunning paper sculptures of books. You can see more of the work here.I have picked this as today's subject... Continue Reading →

Morning Star (Lucifer) – Paul Fryer

Tucked away in the Holy Trinity church in Marylebone, Westminster, Paul Fryer's Lucifer resides.  The church has not been used for worship in nearly 40 years which makes it the perfect abode for this grotesquely beautiful installation. This shows Lucifer as an oily black figure, with huge white wings ensnared in power lines.  The piece... Continue Reading →
