Firstly let me apologise for the Yoda title but it is what came to mind when I started this new blog.
I'm a prolific blogger, though over the years I have blogged on different platforms and on different topics, mainly centred around photography and photographers, however, substitute photography with art and you have the introspection and observation that is common to the creation of any art form.
Over the coming months I will be covering art, the perception of art and the love of art, and, if the blog runs like the others, we will see ourselves disagreeing, agreeing and blowing raspberries at each other. I firmly believe that the subject is more important than the writer and the creative process is as individual as the art we produce.
I'm interested in hearing and seeing your art, so please share!
The energy and emotion of New York!
The first piece that I have the pleasure to embrace is 'New York' by Karen Donaghy. A popular artist, Karen has built a reputation on her stylised approach and has had a few commissions for Glasgow streets from overseas ex pats. Though not her only style, this stylised approach lends itself to the subject meaning that every new creation is fresh for the viewer.
Karen is an artist of note, she spends time researching the subject before getting down to the creating her work. Karen wanted this work to reflect the vibrancy of the city. It's also her biggest of her current work on display, measuring in at just over 4 feet in length.
When we first saw this in its early stages we knew it was going to be bold, her style is energetic and in it she has reflected the important points first, it's only at a more leisurely review that you see the finer nuances and attention to detail.
It's priced at only £650 and for anyone that has been to the Big Apple they'll quickly identify with the energetic narrative and the iconic view of the bridge she has captured here.
A huge well done to her, I have been a fan of her work but this one is a level above!
