We bought one of Napangardi’s paintings 8 years ago. A rain of tiny white dots on a jet black matt background. I loved it then and it is still one of my favorite pieces. She paints the sand hills around Mt Liebig in the Northern Territory, their ebb and flow, the effects of rain and wind on the landscape. I bought it through Artery who don’t represent her anymore – I think her work is too expensive now. But Artery still has amazing painters – not the big names but up and coming artists who are affordable. They also have an excellent online gallery and ship to the States. Great if you are looking for graphic large scale work
We have a nice big white wall in the living room waiting patiently for paintings. I want to cover it from head to foot in art. We’ve got the art. Just need to figure out how to make it all fit together.
We leave for Sydney soon. Been diving into The Design Files to get reacquainted with what’s going on. Lucy Feagins does such a nice job.
Show of his photographs at Annandale Galleries. Wish I was in Sydney…it ends Dec 10 and we arrive a few days later.
Finally a doco about my favorite designers – Charles and Ray Eames. I’ve long been fascinated by the collaborative nature of their work life. And this documentary, EAMES: The Architect and The Painter, made by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey promises to explore their design legacy and their life/work in detail. Just wrote about it over on Lifework…but you can check out the trailer below.
