Madge Pyle

2016 saw the death of many artists, but the most important of them all for me, passed away yesterday. My grand mother Madge Pyle aka "granny". A collage artist herself, she is the one who inspired me to follow her foot steps and has always been my biggest source of inspiration.

Rauschenberg

Robert Rauschenberg was one of the artist I highly regarded when I first started studying art back in Canterbury. His invention of a new form of art-making that moved freely among media and methods is what I found the most compelling. This hugely influenced the way I started to approach art and still work today.

The Tate Modern is currently exhibiting a full-scale restropective of the artist. It folllows a loose chronology, with each room presenting a particular shift in technique or mode of working. I urge you to go and see it if you havent yet.

Forbidden Spot Prague

 

Whilst on the hunt for exhibitions in Prague, I came accross  "Forbidden Spot" a Graffiti themed gallery which uses its walls as art pieces. Worth a visit if you find yourself in that part of the world.
