Victor Hempel – Funky Fish

Posted by: frank in News 2 Comments »

Many thanks to that renaissance man, Victor Hempel (artist, fisherman, sailor, savant and dog-whisperer) for this incredible group of sculptures, collectively known as his “Funky Fish”.  Victor is one of the most intuitive sculptors I’ve ever met, and these works, carved, burnt, paintedh1h3h4h5 and collaged is proof positive of his incredible imagination and skill.

Happy Mother’s Day!

O’Malley was feeling the love during the week.  We were all chillaxing out back of the gallery, and he just cuddled right up to his mom Augie in the afternoon…..friday

Little Curry House

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

There’s a great new option for grabbing some VERY good curry on Anguilla these days.  The Little Curry House has just opened recently, and it’s superb.  It’s in The Valley – about 300 yards down the road from the Post Office.  I’ve had a few things from them, and this roti is one of the bestr1r2r3 I’ve ever had.  It’s an incredibly flavourful  curried chicken and potato mixture, all wrapped up in a delicious savoury pancake.  The wings are wonderful too, and I can tell that the curried lamb has to be my next lunch option.  They have a few tables for sitting, but I brought mine back to the gallery – apologies to Victor Hempel for using his Mask Bowl as a prop……….

I’ve just received and installed this superb early (c.1980) canvas by the late great Haitian master, Henri Robert Bresil (1952-1999).  This is a gem, only 20 x 24″ by Bresil, anhbr artist who painted astoundingly beautiful pastoral landscapes of the Haitian countryside.  Classic, in every sense.

Two new Haitian sculptures

Posted by: frank in News No Comments »

I just installed two very fine vintage Haitian sculptures in the gallery today, both quite wonderful.  The firstricheriche1 is a mask, 13″ high, signed only “Riche”, but different than any other Haitian mask I’ve ever seen.  It combines wood, scrap metal, nails and rope, yet also has some very fine carving on the gentleman’s “hat”.  The second is more of a classic imagery, and this musician, 33″ high,  is signed Jacques Midi, who in fact, is quite a well known carver.  Both superb works, and they compliment the Haitian paintings I’ve hung around them.

Dr. O’Malley, out back of the gallery enjoys his days of leisure.  His mom Augie, is in charge of rodent murder (bravo, Augie btw), and O’Malley just goes with the flow.  I always save him my yogurt cup though, and licking it clean is one of the highlights of the afternoon.yum...

And I love THESE guys

At the gallery this fine Good Friday morning to feed Augie and O’Malley, and came across this very sweet trio doing a little gardening out front.  I needed a lawn trim, actually……..gardeners

Heading up my front steps this afternoon, and came across this sweetie.  Sorry to those who cringe, but new friendI love these critters, especially when they wind around my portal to welcome me home!

Back @ Pumphouse

I just felt like getting out and aboutwingspoutines, so I landed up down in Sandy Ground last evening.  Stopped for a nice chat, as always, with my buddy Lynne Bernbaum.  Her gallery, across the street from Bijou always looks “sharp” – her new work is superb.  Later, drinks and snacks at Pumphouse.  Their menu has evolved, and I enjoyed my fare.  Had both the Buffalo Wings (amazing blue cheese dip) then onto their Jerk Chicken Poutines.  Lovely food and fun ambiance.

Stafford, I hope you’re reading this!  You’re 76, and painting some of the most vital paintings I’ve seen, in the 20-odd years I know you…………

These two paintings, “Fish Harvest” and “Sugar Cane Reapers” are new to the gallery, and are amazing.  This small “Sugar Cane” painting is one of a series of many that the artist has been working on for over a decade now.  It’s only 16 x 20″,  yet has the energy of an enormous masterwork.  “Fish Harvest” seems just the opposite – a poignant rendition of the lives of fisherfolk.sugarcane reapersfish harvest
