The paint is drying as I write on a number of panels ready for my upcoming exhibition in October. I’m hoping to be well under way by next week.
I have 2 of my dog panels at Truevision Gallery ready for a group exhibition opening in 2 weeks time. There will also be another one of different tones that I have yet to finish. The inspiration for the colours came from Morandi and his beautiful still lifes. I have borrowed a wonderful book full of drawings and paintings that are exquisite in tone and composition.
Reading an excerpt from a novel describing Morandi’s objects having qualities similar to the twin towers I came to wondering about the public art destroyed in this catastrophe.
