Breakfast at Malliouhana

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

Almost as good as Breakfast at Tiffany’s!  Seriously though, I was running some errands in the west this morning, and thought I’d treat myself to a nice breakfast.  I did not.  I treated myself to a great breakfast!  The views were pretty as always up there, and I thought the food was outstanding.  Without asking, they started me off with a tray holding a rather perfect combination of a corn muffin, scone and small croissant.  All fresh and delicious, I thought as I inhaled them.  I landing up ordering the egg white, smoked salmon and goat cheese omelette.  Absolute perfection.  Kudos!m3m1m2

Great Sox!

I meet the most interesting people at the gallery!  Earlier in the summer, I had the pleasure of meeting a couple from New York, and the lady owns Lazyjack Press, an on-line purveyor of luxury men’s accessories.  Bought some socks on line, and delighted when I received these very beautiful and comfortable Pima cotton socks from Peru!  Check out www.lazyjackpress.com    Lots of lovely things to consider, especially with the holidays around the corner…..sox

Please see my June 23rd posting for the introduction of Kim Workman’s gyotaku-based paintings.  They continue to dazzle me, and I believe this group of new work is sensational.  I love the gold rubbing of a sliced nautilus shell in the vertical blue “Tarpon”, and I think both the “Heron” and “Basket of Fruit” are created with wonderful layers of interesting materials.  For pics of individual works with sizes and prices. click on the Artists at the top of this page, then click again on Kim Workman’s name.workmaninstallation1workmaninstallation2

As promised, an astounding group of recent sculptures.  This artists’ imagination blows my mind.

Fantastic new metal sculptures from Haiti arrived in the gallery today, including an array of new work by the ever-talented Eugene Jacques.  I’ll have a slide show up within a day or two, but thought I’d whet your appetite with these three…..  First time ever I’ve received free-standing works from this artist!the band

Victor was kind enough to send another box of goodies this week from Grenada to Anguilla.  Two new Nature Boards, including the rather amazing “Octopus”, along with four new “Red Fish”.  The faces on these guys are wonderful and amazing.  Loving the surfaces of them too.

Victor Hempel – new work

Posted by: frank in News No Comments »

DELIGHTED to receive a box of gems from the gallery’s wandering savant, Victor Hempel.  These works are split into two groups, the “Nature Boards”, where Victor uses a dremel rotary tool to carve out his image.  The raw material are pieces of found wood, worn by the sea and cast to the shore.  This artist finds the inherent beauty of the wood by grinding down.  The second group are rather wild and wonderful, his “Fiber Fish”.  The textured surface of these pieces is chopped rope, found on the shore.  I particularly like the collage of copper wire in them…..

A client was in the gallery yesterday, asking about Jo-Anne Mason landscapes.  Alas, I had just sold that wonderful Rose Hill landscape, and nothing more to show.  Contacted Jo-Anne, and she had nothing either.  Today, I was delighted to see Jo-Anne and Chris in the gallery, toting along 2 lovely vintage canvasses of hers dating from 2001.  A couple of gems, IMHO, featuring landscapes of Island Harbour and Sandy Hill.island harboursandy hill

Kim Workman – Gyotaku

Posted by: frank in News 2 Comments »

Way back in April, I was flicking around on TV, and stopped and gawked at a segment on an artists work on PBS’s “Artloft”.  Googled the artists name, Kim Workman, her studio, Kimian, and started corresponding with her.  Today,  the first four works arrived, and I’m still gawking in wonder at them, this time on my gallery walls.  The process is “Gyotaku” (ghee-o-tah-ku), and is Japanese for “fish rubbing”.  An actual fish is inked, then removed to obtain an exact image, then made into a wondrous artwork by Ms Workman.  The artist lives in Cudjoe Key, is self-taught, and draws from her childhood experiences as a daughter of a marine biologist, exploring the barrier islands on the Gulf of Mexico, then later, the coast of South America.  I adore everything about them…..w3w4

Jasmin Joseph (1924-2005), was a truly great Haitian master.  Widely collected during his lifetime, his work is now treasured by collectors worldwide.  This is a wonderful 1989 painting on wood highlighting his classic sense of anthropomorphism, the attributing of human forms or behaviour to an animal.  I wonder what that bear’s got in that satchel…..bear
