103 Fireplace in The Wilson - oil on gesso
I spent a fantastically inspiring morning at The Wilson today looking around the collection with Sophie, one of the curators there. I am now so overloaded with possibilities I'm not sure which way to go and a little giddy. So today I have made a straight painting of one the 'set ups' at the museum. I spent a bit of time thinking about the space that my still life will inhabit. Should it be the corner of the gallery that I have piled up lots of artifacts. Or maybe there should be so many things in the painting that the 'place' they are in is irrelevant... All I am prepared to say at this stage is that fireplaces are always good to put things on.
