Can you believe Christmas is almost here? The weather is starting to feel like winter too. We just had our first fire in the fireplace and started our annual tradition: watching my extensive collection of “A Christmas Carol”. Such a wonderful story of redemption. Last night it was Patrick Stewart; tonight it’s the Albert Finney version. Love ‘em all!

This is actually not a real installation, it is a digital maquette for a forthcoming exhibition, impressive right? I think it's a pleasant image to look at. The artist shows his work at @GaleriePerrotin
🇱🇧 Sunday Shoutout | #LC_Shoutout 🇱🇧
Every Sunday I reference another IG account that I enjoy following for one reason or another.
This week’s Shout Out is for @ramibaker1... one of my little gripes with the art world, and a lot of us are guilty of it, is the use of stock images or full bleed images when selling art.
Isn’t it so much better when you see the work in context with its surroundings, it gives a better sense of colour, texture and/ or scale. I enjoy Rami’s account as when he features an artwork, the photos normally show the work hung in the gallery or museum setting and also typically include someone in the photo. It doesn’t always work but more often than not it does and is a much better way of viewing the work online or on social media (whilst recognising that this still doesn’t get anyway where near to the benefits of viewing an artwork in person, in most instances). Am I on my own here, thoughts?
Thanks Rami 🙌 | #KatharinaGrosse#DavidHockney#KeithHaring#LC_ShoutOut
Kazuo Shiraga (1924–2008) was a Japanese artist who became famous for being that artist who painted with his feet! I've been fascinated by his work for a few years, but stumbling across this image (courtesy of @artxmaster) made me realise I've barely featured his work. As always, this is just a quick insight into the artist's work.
'In May 1957, Shiraga, dressed in a red Pinocchio suit, suspended himself by a rope from the ceiling of a gallery in Osaka and, dangling in space, began to kick oil paint around on a piece of paper lying on the floor. The resultant image was, roughly speaking, an action painting, although of a highly specialised kind. For all that came afterwards, this was to be the genre of work for which Shiraga would be remembered, the defining moment of his art.' Text courtesy of the Independent
'Shiraga joined renowned Japanese avant-garde collective Gutai to push his performative, material-driven painting practice in order to “make something that never existed” before. Shiraga continued this exploration of the relationship between body and material over the course of his career, and is best known for the large-scale foot paintings he made well into his eighties. The foot paintings explore themes of Japanese history, Chinese mythology, and Buddhism while preserving the explosive movements of an artist who continuously sought a dynamic and collaborative relationship with his medium.'

Before photograph of living room, dated and worn. The makeover required new carpet and a change of colour for walls with white trim, painting existing cupboards transformed the room. Reupholstery of lounge vintage club chair and custom cushions - tones of orange and browns. Using @warwickfabrics. Accessories @orienthouse_sydney Asian coffee table and baskets. My client was delighted with the bright updated feel and enjoyed being part of the journey, as we shared the sourcing experience.#interiordesign#styling#interiorstyling#interiordecorating#artconsultant#trish_hurst_interiors

At the moment I'm in Miami for art basel, today was the last day. What a wonderful week so far.
There's an amazing atmosphere going on here, in every little corner of the city you find some people who are talking art, thinking art and breathing art. I'm so excited. .
This painting has a lot of ocean /beach atmosphere going on so... . .

Back in the studio again after my 1st 3 day workshop. It was incredible to open up my space to 7 other amazing artists who spent 3 full days seeking and finding their way with abstract art. We all grew together and my heart is full with the beauty, vulnerability and generosity that everyone brought and shared. Thank you! This changed my life!❤️
