Small Wonders, Great Works

This Friday is the opening of the Small Wonders, Great Works exhibition at the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma.  I was very honoured to be invited to send two paintings, shown earlier.

Fall Cottonwoods with pond 9 x 16 Oil/Wood Panel

Yesterday MA Printmaking first years went on a ‘school outing’ to the Tate Modern to see the Gerhard Richter exhibition.  I confess I was not very familiar with his work, but this exhibit was amazing and spanned most of his life.  What was so interesting was the mix of styles, often created within the same year or two.

Meandering River ii 9 x 16 Oil/Panel

Here are a couple of new paintings which I managed to finish in between all the other stuff!  I had my first tutorial and lecture last week.   It was certainly stimulating and it is going to stretch my brain somewhat, which is great.  I found the tutorial really helpful with lots of discussion about risk, unlearning and dismantling oneself!  Lots of book suggestions, so I don’t think I shall be reading many novels for a while!  I am not sure what I think about Post Modernism though… any thoughts?
