AN AFFORDABLE ART SHOW REVIEW – WITH A DIFFERENCE
This is Giro II, a bronze by Cesar Orrico.
And a lovely shot of Her Majesty by Ashleigh Sumner at Tag Fine Arts.
And, below, a rather wonderful Greyhound made from driftwood by James Doran Webb. Several people were circling this work – a testament to his skill at bringing this subject alive.
This was a fun find by Adam Oliver called Tenth Part Golden Goose !
Something quite ’21st century pop art’ was ‘She No. 32’ by Chamnan Chongpaiboon. Would look great in a modernist, neutral colour scheme to really showcase the colours.
These are by David Eustace. See more of his work here.
This is fun! This is called Gold Leaf by Aline Hercberg.
And this made me laugh! It’s called Zen Trooper by Ryan Callanan.
Something a little more traditional here by Paddy Jones. This is called Striped Jug Still Life.
And something to stand out on a plinth.. This is by Clara L Mikimoto from Able Fine Art Gallery.
Other things to see at the Affordable Art Fair…
An interesting part of this year’s fair was the stand by The Economist, showcasing virtual reality and 3D printing.
The Economist have been highlighting the destruction of art and antiquities in Iraq and Syria due to the ever continuing Middle Eastern religious wars.
3D printing technologies are being adapted for use by the construction industry to recreate the lost art antiquities and structures. This is done by 3D mapping and printing from photographs taken by scholars, tourists and museum registries. This is quite the science of the moment and thankfully being used for good during some very dark moments of human evolution.
Virtual Reality had its first outing during the 1990s. I remember it being billed as the latest and greatest technology that was going to revolutionise our world. It never really took off, (although computer game manufacturers made something out out it). But because it is the next step on from the screen technology that we all use everyday, it will undoubtedly be something that companies will embrace and utilise within their industries.
It was good to see both technologies represented at the Affordable Art Fair and linked to both the past and the future in equal measure.
All in all, it was a fabulous day out at a renowned art show – hopefully, this Affordable Art Fair review has given you some way of enjoying this event – I’ll leave you a fun photo to make you smile! These are by Anne-Valerie Dupond at Decorazon. See you there next year!
