I had visited the Saatchi-Saatchi gallery before the fire. They had a great collection. I remember the work of an artist using few pints of his own blood turned into an ice-sculpture.
I like a lot Rego’s work. Thanks for the link.
Thank you Amina 🙂
Fortunately there are so many interesting people to make this site “cool”. Very often I don’t want to make a new post, now for instance. I like to open this page and see this painting. It’s a pity to bring all these talented people, as well as Somalia, to a second page.
That frozen blood sculpture was very cool. If I remember correctly, he had taken eight pints of his own blood (which is how much blood we have in our body) over a few days and had made a sculpture of his own head with it.
BB2, somehow the distortion of the head with these eyes are familiar to us. Also the disproportions of the body.
Salam Alibaba! I have a few post prepared about the music… but this slow connexion, it takes time for me to select the music.
Shirin-banoo, I guess this sculpture has melted with the fire! Another painting I liked in Saatchi’s gallery was ” The Patron”, by Ashley Bickerton.
