SANSKRITI KENDRA residency Oct 1 – Nov 18 2011


I am now back and settling into Australian life again. This was a fantastic experience and I ended up spending my entire 2 months in Delhi, most of that at Sanskriti Kendra. My ideas and work have developed during this process and I was fortunate enough to meet many inspirational artists and visitors along the way and also exhibit some of this work in Delhi and at Sanskriti.

EUROPE


June 20: I am currently driving around France, Spain and England eating, drinking, sightseeing and visiting many of the well known galleries, plus some hidden gems. Highlights have been -:

Paris, The Louvre….where do you start? Possibly Gericault’s The Raft of the Medusa or the fantastic Greek sculpture, The Winged Victory of Samothrace. The sheer amount of great art is overwhelming and requires another well planned and much longer visit. Centre Pompidou – perfect timing to see the Lucian Freud L’Atelier exhibition.

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao – the very impressive sculptural works of Anish Kapoor.

In Madrid, the large Goya collection at The Prado.
Picasso’s Guernica at the Museo De Arte Reina Sofia.

Guggenheim Museum




In Barcelona, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia - this building does your head in.
Back in Southern France, the Niaux Caves in the Ariege Pyrenees – this amazing exhibition has been up for 14,000 years.

The Toulouse Lautrec Museum in Albi was worth the visit. This is Toulouse Lautrec’s birthplace and the museum holds the world’s largest collection of his work.

In London, The Tate Modern – I have always been a little critical of the much acclaimed work of Joseph Beuys, including The Pack, but when you actually see it, it’s pretty cool. I would still rather take home the large Matisse around the corner though.

The Pack




The National Gallery – the Turners, the ambiguous little paintings of Pietro Longhi and
in particular, Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawing, Mary, Christ, Saint Anne and Saint John the Baptist.
