ART: EMILY YOUNG | PRIVATE VIEW



We were recently asked by the Fine Art Society to look at their private show of works by Emily Young. We weren't entirely convinced that her pieces would work in such an environment, but they did. In fact the space complimented her work to a greater extent than in previous cases and the experience was enhanced by incredible views overlooking the Tate Modern and St Paul's. We'll be talking with Willoughby Gerrish of FAS in the NY to find out more about her work and her upcoming show in February.

INTERIORS: PALAU DE CASAVELLS | SPAIN







 

We've been hearing from our super talented Spanish designer, Marta Yanguas, about a beautiful area called Ampurdan in Spain. Here one will find the above, an incredibly austere space called Palau de Casavells. It's an exquisite atelier and art gallery with antiques and a modern art collection from all over the world. A great concept and perfectly executed, one more reason to take another trip to Spain.

ANTIQUES: FROM ALEXANDER WATERWORTH INTERIORS


ARTWORK BY DAVID GONCALVES

We recently purchased this incredibly beautiful pair or rocking chairs, dating around the middle of last century. We were thinking of having them covered for practical use but decided against it, believing them to be unique and inspiring in their on right to be a sculptural piece. 
We were lucky enough to purchase the painting by one of Portugal's rising stars in the art world, David Goncalves. We're planning on a trip early next year to his studio in Porto and getting some in-depth information into what makes Mr Goncalves tick: which of course we'll be sharing with the blog.

LYGIA CLARK @ ALISON JACQUES

We were unfortunately not able to attend this years Art Basel in Miami though we sat down with Rory Mitchell, representing Alison Jacques at the show, who picked his top pieces from the show. We asked Rory why he chose Lygia Clark:


Rory Mitchell: 'Lygia Clark was one of the most important Brazilian artists of the Twentieth Century and a central figure in the Neo-Concretist movement. Her bichos represented a vital shift in medium for the artist; as she moved from two dimensions to three dimensions in an attempt to overcome the space between an artwork and it's viewer. She intended the sculptures to be handled and placed in different positions, with the hinges acting as spines between plates. In her own words: 'It is a living organism, an essentially active work' 


We'll be hearing more from Rory in upcoming Alison Jacque shows.
