Henri Robert Bresil

I adore the work of the late great Haitian master Henri Robert Bresil.  His landscapes are distilled pure beauty, and lift the spirit.  I’ve just hung this one in the gallery – early 1990’s, 48 x 24″,  with impeccable provenance.  

A big thank you to the talented Kim Workman for sending the gallery these 5 particularly beautiful small paintings, based on gyotaku fish-rubbings.  I truly enjoy telling visitors to the gallery about her technique, but the superb quality of the work is what makes them shine.

Food Art

Posted by: frank in News 1 Comment »

As most of you know, two of my great passions are great food and great art.  Imagine my wonderment when the two are combined.  I was tickled by the watermelon sculpture at the buffet at Zemi Beach today.  DEEEE-lightful, as was the particularly delicious breakfast spread…

New and beautiful paintings are arriving these days from Anguilla-based artist Jo-Anne Mason.  She and her husband Chris are doing a lot of sailing around the region, and her take on various anchorages has been really quite lovely.  These two paintings, “Almost Dark” and “Returning at Sunset” illustrate my point.

Sunday fun at Jacala

Posted by: frank in News 2 Comments »

GREAT vibe at Jacala yesterday.  Sunday there can be so much fun, with great friends, and maybe a tad too much table hopping on my part.  I savored both specials yesterday – started with a vegetable and feta terrine, then segued into a dazzling shrimp risotto…..  Every bite was perfection!

Anguilla Day!

Round the Island boat race yesterday to celebrate Anguilla Day.  The still shots are mine, and I thank my neighbor Tommy Hodge for this incredible drone footage of the race as it heads past!

Stafford Schliefer

I found this wonderful quote of the artist in reallife magazine, a publication about Caribbean design and culture.  It’s at the end of the article, and Stafford says this about his work “somewhat akin to surrealist philosophy…to be interpreted in the mind’s eye, rather than the actuality of physical involvement”.  I thought it was a profound sentiment as I installed these two new works in the gallery, “Fishing Village”, and “Roses, Hibiscus and Wine Bottle”.  Both such beautiful and evocative gems.
