Sandy Hill, Anguilla

I pretty much always respect an artist when they see a work of theirs in the gallery, and know it could be tweaked for the better. So be it with Jo-Anne Masons’ “Sandy Hill, Anguilla”. Painted in 2017, the artist took it back to her studio last summer, and this work emerged. A great addition to the gallery.

Blackened lobster and shrimp tacos today at Straw Hat, on always gorgeous Meads Bay. Add in one of their famous ‘ti punches, and I’m a happy lad….

I love all the new Mikerson sculptures, but I really give a HOOT about this one….

Third dimension

Posted by: frank in News No Comments »

I didn’t know if you could see the third dimension in these Mikerson sculptures, in this case individual fish, welded then onto posts, which get welded onto the main sculpture. I believe it’s rather unique in this particular genre of metal scilptire

One of the great gallerist temptation is to take home every gorgeous work one happens to fall in love with. But no, I shall be a good lad, as I’ve just installed seven new Jean Mikerson sculptures. He’s an artist from Haiti, and these works are created using recycled metal from 55-gallon oil drums.
