It was a real pleasure to attend the opening receiption for “Inwards and Outwards” at Fotografiska. An exhibition held in honour of Anton Corbjin the world renowned Dutch Photographer, Music Video and Film Director. I am a big fan of Corbijn’s Photography and Film work and I have followed his successful career with a keen interest since the late 70′s and early 80′s. It was during this time that Anton Corbijn journey began into the unknown. Like many of us in our early twenties who moved London we were sucked up by the explosion of new and emerging New Wave, Punk Rock bands and Art scenes. Continue reading
This autumn, Moderna Museet Stockholm, Sweden, will present an overview of the beginnings of modern art. The three exhibitions Turner, Monet, Twombly: Later Paintings; Another Story; and De ou par Marcel Duchamp pae Ulf Linde offer a unique opportunity to experience the way that painting, photography, and ideas converge to form Modernism in a collaboration between eye, hand, machine, and brain.
The exhibitions are supported by a busy program of events, which will be launched with three lectures about J.M.W. Turner, Claude Monet, and Cy Twombly. These will be complimented by a symposium on the concept of Late Style, a programme of films and conversation on Marcel Duchamp. The high points of Modernism will be encapsulated in lectures on key concepts in the history of aesthetics. The autumn’s activities will conclude with a symposium on the relationship between painting and photography.
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the renowned contemporary Irish Abstract Artist and close friend from back home Brian Henderson.

A self taught artist he relocated to New York City 1971 after receiving the prestigious MacCaulay fellowship administered by The Arts Council of Ireland at just 21 years of age. Continue reading

Born in Örebro 1980, Jon went on to study at the prestigious Royal University College of Fine Arts Stockholm 2003 to 2008. It was during this period that we had a chance meeting during an art preview at Sweden’s most prestigious auction house Bukowskis, summer of 2006. Continue reading
BRIT ARTIST, Antony Mark David Gormley’s revitalization of the human figure in sculptures hit the heights. It follows on from a previous exhibition “Another Place” Crosby Beach, Liverpool 2006. I first had the pleasure of meeting the artist when he gave an open discussion of his work at IMMA, The Irish Musuem Modern Art back in the early 90′s. Gormley was born to a German mother and Irish father and grew up in West Yorkshire UK. His exhibition at IMMA was a complete success capturing the public’s imagination, goodwill and support. Totally impressed, I went back many times to view the exhibition and like many I was certain Gormley would become a very big voice in the contemporary art world, but little did I know just how big! Many of the Brit Art Group were supported by Charles Saatchi co founder of the global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi. However, Antony Gormley was not one of them!
In one of his few public speeches (at the Turner Prize award ceremony held at the Tate in 1994 when he announced that Antony Gormley— a sculptor whose work Charles Saatchi did not collect— had won the £20,000 prize), he remarked:
I’m not sure what today’s young British artists are putting in their porridge in the mornings but it seems to be working. They’re providing the most striking new art being made anywhere in the universe, and it seems every museum, from Nebraska to Alaska, is ringing up trying to organise shows of their work. Now I don’t know, any more than you, what has made our young artists suddenly so supercharged, but I am certain that teachers like Michael Craig-Martin at Goldsmiths’ College have had a tremendous effect. [Applause.] Now Goldsmiths’, and in recent years the Royal College, and some other art schools, they have set a tone and a level of ambition that has stimulated not just their graduates, but young artists all over Britain who are producing work that is challenging, articulate and relevant. Now if sometimes that work appears tasteless and cynical and uncouth, I think it’s because sometimes we all are. [No applause greeted this admission.] I think that the Turner Prize has itself become an inspiration and a catalyst. It’s a cliché, but it is nevertheless true, that we all welcome the wider interest and debate in contemporary art that the Turner Prize generates. At the very least it gives four young artists every year the chance to exhibit their work here at the Tate.
