collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Untitled (Car)

(painting source: Saatchi Gallery)

Untitled (Car), 2004, Tom McGrath

The winter issue of The Paris Review features some glorious paintings of Tom McGrath: Portfolio

McGrath's paintings try to capture images from the viewpoint of a car seat. I loved the one in TPR where the wiper is just about to move and wipe away the rain water (see Portolfio link above.)

More paintings at the Sue Scott Gallery

Definitely an artist to keep a tab on.
