I went to see the David Hockney exhibition in the Royal Academy in London last week. It was pretty impressive, the amount of work on show and the sheer scale of some of it. Really great bright coloured paintings, photo montage, iPad drawings and films in the playful Hockney style. The Royal Academy’s open till midnight some nights so worth checking out even if you have to squeeze it into a pub crawl!
Watch the video below of a Channel 4 interview with David Hockney.
Photo-real still life and interior landscape paintings from Manchester born London based Artist Paul Winstanley. Working from Photographs he takes himself, Paul Winstanley depicts the mundane moments of everyday life; waiting rooms; carparks; hallways in and extraordinary way.
“There are common denominators to all experience, how we live our lives, where we live, what we remember. There are cultural connections between us all. I try and find subject matter at this fundamental level; at a level that sparks recognition. It is the extremely ordinary things in life where these connections can be found. In developing images of these situations the ordinary becomes extraordinary and we see them anew. Everywhere there are beautiful things. Life is amazing.” Dazed Digital
Skillfully understated paintings from Irish born Artist Kevin Cosgrove.
“Cosgrove sees himself as craftsman, or artisan, and accordingly his art is superbly constructed and carefully articulated. His relatively traditional upbringing in a mining community in the central heartlands of Ireland has instilled a strong sense of survival, craft and industry into his skilfully austere and muted canvases of under-populated workplaces: factories, workshops, industrial yards and offices..” artnews.org
Kevin Cosgrove is represented by Mother’s Tankstation in Dublin and is exhibiting his work along with Mairead O’hEocha and Ian Burns at the Art Los Angeles Contemporary, Santa Monica from the 19th to the 22nd of January 2012.

Beautiful paintings from Polish Artist and Architect Daria Pietryka.
“She believes that art and architecture are inseparable elements, and that they permeates through each other. She perceives building as a functional sculpture, interior as an abstract composition.”
I was very impressed with her exhibition ‘The Peculiar Case of Ms Cloud’ in 2010 at the Mill Theatre Dundrum in Dublin.
