It’s been another funny few days. Yesterday I had an interesting time browsing around the Homes & Interiors exhibition. There was a lot more artwork there this year than last which made it a bit more interesting for me. As a former Interior Designer, people think that I am really into this kind of thing but to be honest, it does nothing for me, so I spent most of my time there looking at the paintings.
I had an interesting discussion with a very pleasant and experienced art gallery owner who told me that I had to decide if I was a “commercial artist” or a “fine artist”. This has haunted me since the discussion as I hate the term “commercial artist” . The gallery owner told me that they were interested in a piece of my artwork which they saw in a competitors gallery and yet, they only exhibit fine art. Well at least I have some pieces which crosss over.
I have uploaded an “art wall” where i hav about 80% of my paintings from the last few years in one place. An attempt to bring something new to the website and for me, a really interesting experience to see all this work in one place.
