EYUP Presents an exhibition at the prestigious Picture House on Abbydale Road, Sheffield (Sheffield Contemporary). Jessica Smedley (who paints under the name J.M.R.Smedley) is a 21 year old Artist based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK. With a sporadic education and limited training in art she relies heavily on her imagination and love of whimsy. As an Expressionist, her main focus, other than dreamlike imagery, is use of vibrant colour and the creation of interesting texture by layering paint.
Most of the women who helped developed the abstract expressionist movement have largely been left out of (art) history. 🔥
Marginalized throughout their careers, their contributions are STILL left out of contemporary analysis and exhibitions.
Today, I'm exploring the work of Helen Frankenthaler. Because I need to. 🔥
Clip from the fascinating BBC Documentary ‘Francis Bacon: A Brush with Violence’ featuring art historian and friend of Francis’ Michael Peppiatt talking about the death of Francis’ lover George Dyer in Paris and the Triptych Francis painted inspired by his grief. Link in bio.
It's really great to spot work by Ecuadorian artist and sculptor Guayasamin, a favorite. He is described as an expressionist artist (1940's +). In particular, his work is an expression of the pain and suffering of indigenous peoples from the violence, political and social injustices of the time. As such and because of his support of communist Cuba, his work drew a lot of social criticism and discrimination . Guayasamin's father was Quechua and his mother was mestizo. I highly recommend visiting his museum in Quito and learning more about him and his work. Including another perspective on the life of some of his better known friends, Pablo Neruda and Fidel Castro.
Alo, is an Italian artist, well-known for his urban expressionism style. Most of his work is found in Paris, London and Berlin and it is easy to recognize. He has been greatly influenced expressionism (French) and cubism (German). I've seen a few pieces already, partly because it's so distinct from other street artists.
