If you’re a fan of art – paintings and prints in particular then have a look at the Saatchi Art website. I have recently attended the American Art exhibition at the Gallery of NSW and with numerous museum visits in Europe can honestly say that looking at art provokes creativity, illustrates new trains of thought and gives you a whole other depth to the world.
I used to go to Art school when I was 8-9 and we really covered a lot of the different thematics – sculpture, sketching, aquarelle… I’ll still paint sometimes but have been finding it hard to find time and I guess motivation. My visions are limited to a picture or a painting I see. In this case I think its a good idea to mix up home decorating with your own artwork for a personal touch and also purchase art to add another depth and atmosphere to the interior.
I recommend for anyone who loves art to browse through the numerous collections on Saatch Art and there are curated collections by visitors, artists, buyers.
Some of my favourite paintings have always been those based on still life, particularly flowers and fruit. Perhaps its a little boring but I like the fact that there was that simplicity of every day objects tied into a complex work of art.
Still Life With Figs, Liubov Kvashnina
honeybee, Charla Morgan
I equally find paintings with water absolutely beautiful and peaceful.
Boca Boys, Charlotte Evans
No Man’s Land #2, Lou Ross
