OOPS ! A VERY LATE BLOG ENTRY !! ... Our Tate Modern Trip.

Oops! should have posted this one before the last blog! Sorry!

Hi ... to my 3 followers !

A few Fridays ago, we celebrated our daughters birthday and decided to meet at Tate Modern. We went to see the photography exhibition called " Shape of Light". It is a 100 years of Photography and Abstract Art . Quote from Tate Modern Site "Shape of Light is the first major exhibition to explore the relationship between the two, spanning the century from the 1910s to the present day. It brings to life the innovation and originality of photographers over this period, and shows how they responded and contributed to the development of abstraction. For the first time, Tate Modern tells the intertwined stories of photography and abstract art. "
The swings may not be inside the Tate any more but ... they are still VERY popular !


We decided to meet in the new building's Members Room. It is a very funky cafe.





We had some coffee/tea and then went down to the Exhibition. I was not sure what to expect but as soon as l entered my heart skipped a beat. I have always been interested in lines, whether in my Photography, which l did my degree in ( quite by accident! :) or Painting and Drawing. 


Can you see the similarity between the above photograph image and the painting? 


I suppose this Exhibition made me start to see my own Art in a serious way. I don't mean l don't take my own Art seriously but it sort of gave me permission to be serious and proud of my own Art. A lot of what l created in College, was dismissed by my tutors. It knocked me back and until recently l had not bounced back. I will show you some of the work now! :)




The wonderful Jackson Pollock's work.



Polaroid Images ... love these!



LOVE these images !









Small can be beautiful too !


Then the last Gallery ... boy what a treat. Just stunning!


Oh ... hello me!


Looking down to the ground floor and the "slope" entrance.



Then back outside again ... and look what l found! A group of bones picked up from down on the sand! Of course l had to choose some and take them home. my family wee not impressed!  :)


Love London at night !



What a wonderful day we had. Happy Birthday gorgeous daughter xx

Art saved my Life.

A couple of years ago, when my depression was quite bad, l took up drawing again. I bought some double sided, concertina, hardback books. ...
