I went to Aros – the local museum of Art. I love the place and with my membership card I can go there as often as I like. And I like to go often.
They are celebrating the 70th birthday of Mogens Gissel with a special exhibition. I like his artwork. His works are clean, the colors seem dry and clear and some of his works are more sketch-like.
And of course, when I am at Aros I must see the department of contemporary art. And to my great pleasure I saw that they had a huge artwork, made by Robert Rauchenberg and a huge artwork made by David Parrish. Two great Pop Art artists.
About 3 years ago I joined an online gallery. It was a new world for me. I had been more or less alone with my art. I only knew a few other artists. Entering an online gallery gave so much inspiration. I saw art that I had never seen before and I was confronted with the great courage that some artists have.
It was at that online Gallery I first saw the paintings of Mille-Maj, and her paintings had that kind of courage that I admire so much. Mille-Maj dares to be messy in her art works. Being messy in the professional way requires that you have a lot of skills in what you are doing. Otherwise the mess will be nothing more than mess.
The mess of Mille-Maj is a lot more than mess. It is stories. Great stories.
Besides being a great artist Mille-Maj also teaches in her Pop Art School. I my self have had the pleasure of joining one of her courses. And they are recommendable.
I have chosen a few of her paintings that I like a lot. But you will find a lot more at her homepage.
My new fabric has arrived, and it is so fantastic. It is with great excitement that I upload my files and spend my time waiting for the postman to arrive with the envelope. When it finally arrived it makes me so happy to touch the fabric and to see how beautyfull the fabric turned out.
