Claudio Romo

I am intrigued by pretty much anything and everything...I love museums off all kinds, I find displays of old medical research fascinating, I have an appreciation of science, but I also love fantasy and the creative... which I am finding is an unusual quality in people as I get older.  Usually (and I am not...

Incarnation – Martin Wittfooth

Elephants are truly majestic and amazing creatures aren't they? Intelligent and soulful and one of the greats which wonder the Earth, yet there are some that still feel that their tusks are better used by humans than by the elephant themselves.   Without getting on my high horse about it, no one needs an elephants tusk......

La Cour des Grands – Bruno Pontiroli

Life is fragile isn't it.  Nothing quite brings that home as much as a death of a loved one.  You realise that there are things that you took for granted from them - seeing them smile, listening to them moan, their little bad habits like turning the TV up too loud or snoring.  This, maybe... Continue Reading →

Turn the Mirrors in to Windows – Kasia Darwinska

Life is full of ups and downs, and at times it can really feel like a roller coaster.  Sometimes that means you do and say stupid things to those closest to you, sometimes it means you do the smallest things which can mean the world to someone else.  What is also evident is no matter... Continue Reading →

Swans Reflecting Elephants – Salvador Dali

You know, the world is full of things which makes your brain believe that it can see something which isn’t actually there.  You know what I am talking about… things like seeing a hot dog in clouds or a face in the pattern of fabric.  It’s called Pareidolia, and it is a psychological phenomenon where... Continue Reading →

The Lovers II – Rene Magritte

I have been on holiday... In case you wondered why I had been quiet. It has been a crazy week, with a trip to Brussels and then a mad dash to Lincoln to watch two amazing people get married, so this left very little time to sit down and write, but while I was away,... Continue Reading →

Arrival of the flower ship – Vladimir Kush

I have a real bugbear when people spell my real name incorrectly. Generally they miss out an e, which I find amazing as it is usually in an email, where they have had to spell my name correctly to get the email to me in the first place. My name isn't difficult, it's also at... Continue Reading →

The man who puts women on fire – Wolfgang Lettl

There is nothing quite so attractive as someone who can stimulate the mind as well as the body.  I maybe in the minority here, as obviously most first attraction is built on the physical, but I find nothing more attractive than someone who can spark inspiration and hold an intellectual conversation with a witty rapport. ... Continue Reading →

Untitled – Zdzislaw Beksinski

I have a completely visual mind. This means I dream in colour and very vividly. I remember a lot of the dreams I have in the few hours sleep I get, and disappointingly they are usually ultra realistic and while I really wish Tom Hardy would pop in to them, I'm usually stuck with someone... Continue Reading →

What the water gave me – Frida Kahlo

I don't like feet... well I don't like other people's feet. Mine are obviously adorable, but feet generally are not a persons best feature. They are functional, they get you from point A to point B, so why would you want to complete a self portrait of your feet? Personally I wouldn't, but Kahlo creates... Continue Reading →

Toxoplasmosis 1 – Casey Weldon

Cats, they are funny creatures aren't they? One minute they want fuss and attention then next they are ready and armed to slice your face off. They can be adorable, then sit on a shelf and push your ornaments on to the floor. They are like the mother of all mood swings. It could be... Continue Reading →

Bond of Union – M.C. Escher

There are some people in your life that you feel so in tune with, so in sync that you couldn’t imagine your life without them. You could say that these people are to you, your rock, your muse, your inspiration, the people who stand by you through your good times and bad, and who understand... 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... Continue Reading →

Pegasus and Muse – Ernst Fuchs

Today’s post, I unapologetically release the full force of my Greek myth geekdom. This painting has so much going on, that I really want to give you all the full breakdown of what is going on, to do the piece of work justice. Ernst Fuchs was a man of many talents, along side painting his... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Trophic interaction within a single tree community – Raoul Deleo

Tucked away on the second floor of the Rotterdam natural history museum, is an art exhibit by Raoul Deleo. This seems like a really odd place to have this type of display, as it's neither natural or truly historical, but none the less, this is an amazing world created by wondrous mind. 'During the last... Continue Reading →

Couple aux têtes pleines de nuages – Salvador Dali

I don't usually open with someone else's words, but Dali's "Couple with their heads full of clouds", really brings to mind the poetry of Percy Shelley for me, so here is the first stanza for you to enjoy while looking at this beautiful piece of surrealism. "I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From... Continue Reading →

Le modèle rouge III – Rene Magritte

I consider myself to be amazingly lucky, as when I'm not working, I get to run around all over the world seeing artworks. Right now I am in Rotterdam, and visited the delightful Boijmans art museum. This is really close to Rotterdam central and for anyone who is a keen art lover should visit this... Continue Reading →

Night Call – Ray Caesar

When I was young I would walk to the phone box around the corner from my mum and dads house so that I could call my boyfriend at the time in privacy. Something completely unheard these days as you can easily hide away with your mobile phone, or video chat to your hearts content. Caesar... Continue Reading →

Vanity – James Jean

I'm one of those women who puts their make up on at the start of the day and that's it. I don't carry a small make up bag with me, filled with the essentials to touch up through out the day. I'm the same with my hair. I do it once then, come hell or... Continue Reading →

The seven deadly sins and the four last things – Bosch

Now...before I even begin to talk about the art work or that fantastic nutter, Hieronymus Bosch, there is an arguement that this painting may not have been his, but done by one of his students.  As we know with Michelangelo, signatures where not always a big thing in art previously as I guess for the... Continue Reading →

Metamorphosis of Narcissus

Dali, is by far one of my favourite artists.  While I appreciate he's not palatable for everyone as the content of the work is often uncomfortable in its presentation, or it's so surreal that literal thinkers bypass it totally, there is a pure genius in his art work, and just a little understanding of the...
