Eddi and I have spent the last two weeks travelling through outback Australia.  We hadn't intended to drive 6000km in such a short time but we were absolutely fascinated by the colours of the outback and by the time we reached Wilpena Pound and travelled through Brachina Gorge we wanted more....

Mine alone is the land that exists in my soul - Chagall

 

An artist recently commented on the fact that my interpretation of a painting didn’t concur with his own story.  This raised an interesting dilemma for me and I would like to defend one’s right to appraise pictures in the absence of an artist’...

Helen Minogue and Peter Wade spoke to captive audiences last Sunday as our on-line operation was officially launched.   It was a magic day for art lovers when, clutching tiny toys which often feature in her work, Helen spoke about her paintings. Like  many artists, her work evolves as she progresse...

Last week I touched on the subject of interpretation of content which still eludes me somewhat.  I know I am not alone in this. I've listened to talks by guides in art galleries around the world and wondered at what they can elicit from a few brush strokes.  I am of a similar mind to a lot of those...

A major part of my learning curve to discover what drives artists to create the works they do and to understand the content has, over the past year, involved something of a study tour of galleries both in Australia and overseas.  These have included the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Nationa...

This week I have been studying Garry Shead’s D H Lawrence painting Le Petit Dejeuner and frankly I am wondering what it is all about.  I’ve asked Eddi to try and explain what Shead is trying to impart here.  I see two people sitting on a Union Jack looking uncomfortable with a huge kangaroo si...

My interest in art goes back a long way. Wherever I have travelled I have always carried paints and a watercolour pad to capture memories of hilltop views or coastal plains.  I find it relaxing and spiritually enriching to connect with the landscape in this way and I can look back at these crude br...

A beginners guide to understanding and collecting art........

 

My art journey began in earnest after I left England two years ago. Although Australian, I had been practising for many years in the UK as a Paediatrician, specialising in ADHD.  Early in 2013,  I reconnected with Eddi Jennings a well kn...
