So i have been thinking recently about what new features i could included on Ella Masters and i thought that i could do about my travels and because i live in london i could about places that i have been, recommending places so here is the first one enjoy.
Today i took mum up to the RA summer show, one of my favourite art shows of the year, its a mix of ameture painters mixed in with more famous artists like Tracey Emin. It is such a massive traditional exhibiton i went along to swot up on what selling and for inspiration.
It was the furthest mum had been on here feet for like 15weeks since she broke her leg so it was quite an epic trip…she did really well we took it really easy and we really enjoyed ourselves, I really recommend going to the summer show because it has such an amazing diverse spectrum of art that there is something for everyone and also some of the prints and paintings are reasonable and there are some pieces that are £90,000 ridiclous but still amazing. I love the history that comes with the show, the walls are covered top to bottom with paintings so pieces at the top of the wall are quite hard to see but that is the tradition of artists that work that wasnt as good would be hung above the Line, it is like the “Salone de reguees” from the 18-19th century.
I am really hoping to enter some work into the competition next year and i hope to work towards now while i have the time to do it, it has given me great confidence looking at all the other work in the show i am hoping to take up painting again i miss painting i actually use to be pretty good at oils and acrylics i have been using them since i was about 10 i inherited these two amazing antique 19th century oil set so i have been using them but i may invest in a new set.
Mine and my mums favourite piece was by Grayson Perry the potter and turner prize winner his work is delicious and amazing it was a little macabre, but the gold, glaze and drawing were really inspirational i really want to learn to sculpt so maybe i could do a wee bit of craft? if anyone is in london i really recommed going to see it, it is £6.00 for students and £8.00 for normal. really worth it.
