Tate Liverpool, Comparing Tracey Emin & William  Blake

A thought provoking juxtaposition of work from Tracey Emin and William Blake, (1757 – 1827) the brilliantly creative painter, and poet, way ahead of his time, who perhaps shared strong passions on liberality, spirituality and life.

The Print Maker’s American Dream

The British Museum has an exhibition of outstanding printmaking from the 1960s US to the present day, including work by Andy Warhol.  The exhibition covers a range of US history from the Vietnam War and the assassination of Kennedy,  to slave ships.  I haven’t been yet but the reviewers describe this exhibition as “Vivid”.

London – James Ensor

James Ensor was a Belgian artist who with almost obsessive loyalty lived and worked in Ostend. Not surprisingly, he was and is less well known than he might have otherwise been. He became embittered. His emotional and mental state is perhaps reflected in his work. His mother rang a curiosity  shop. He painted the masks and ceramics – stocked in his mother’s shop -on people, very vividly. The resulting paintings are striking.
