Our Picture of the Week is Tracey Adams' "Sattva 7." There is a musicality to Tracey Adams' work as she creates variations on a theme throughout a series before moving on to a new story entirely. This new series meditates on the Sanskrit word "sattva," which is associated with purity, wholesomeness, and virtue. Similar to Adams' "Guna" series that we represent, these encaustic works are activated by unexpected color combinations, careful use of negative space, and graceful line. She pushes the pigmented wax around the paper like paint, then layers her shapes with transparent color by dipping the entire piece in wax before repeating the process until satisfied.

#BRAFA2018 : Henri Person (1876 - 1926), "Remorqueurs dans le port de Toulon", aquarelle sur papier, signée en bas à gauche
Dans quelques jours, nous vous proposons de découvrir un ensemble totalement inédit d'aquarelles d'Henri Person. Proche de Paul #Signac qui l'initie au #divisionnisme et avec qui le #peintre entretient une amitié sincère, Person est profondément attaché à Saint-Tropez, sa ville d'adoption, et lance un projet qui lui tiendra à coeur jusqu'à la fin de sa vie, le futur Musée de l'Annonciade.
EN 🇬🇧 BRAFA Art Fair is about to open in just a few days. On our booth, we will unveil an exclusive selection of watercolours by Henri Person. A close friend of Paul Signac's who initiates him to the divisionist technique, Person feels deeply rooted in #Saint -Tropez, his adoptive city. Concerned about its artistic heritage, he launches a project - a museum that will eventually become the "Musée de l'Annonciade" (modern art #museum in Saint-Tropez) - and will contribute actively to its achievement for the rest of his life.
