Faking Kandinsky

17 May

This week’s fake with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook is one of Wassily Kandinsky’s views of Murnau, painted when he lived there in the early years of the twentieth century. I love it. I’ve used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto a gesso-prepared stretched canvas.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    Ah Kandinsky (“before he was captured by the Bauhaus”). We saw a great exhibition of Russian Constructivist works when we were in Paris a few years back. We loved the early Kandinsky works, but the curator was obviously disappointed that he had been “captured by the Bauhaus” . Such an excellent phrase to trot out when needed. 🤣🤣🤣

      That’s great. I wasn’t familiar with his work from this period until now. I thought it looked a bit like Gabrielle Munter’s work, then I found out they lived together.
