In other news: I have made a portfolio website - finally! If you hop on over to www.famapa.net you can check it out for yourselves. And commission me and give me work, and an exhibition etc etc - haha! This is the year when I'll take my photography a bit more seriously, and hopefully there's some new adventures on the way. Let me know what you think!
Now if you excuse me, I think I need to go and get me some cake to celebrate. Hip hip!
a section showing how the museum kept their art safe during the Second World War. They built a bunker in the dunes by the sea where they hid priceless art from the Nazis, and implemented a system of marking the back of paintings, according to how important they were. These three paintings were hung back to front to show the different coloured dots (sadly I can't remember which of three colours was deemed "irreplaceable") - don't they look great?! I might blow one of these up big, so I can hang one on our wall...
We went to see the amazing Guy Bourdin exhibition at Somerset House a couple of weeks ago. It's on until the 15th of March, so I urge to go if you can, and it's probably not one to bring the kids to - if you know what I mean. His approach to his photography is fascinating; he would draw his photographs on a grid, placing everything perfectly before going anywhere near the camera. There are also some large paintings in the exhibition, where if you look closely, you can see how he's painted on top of a 1cm x 1cm hand drawn grid! That's some serious OCD. Have a great weekend!
