Serpentine Gallery : Etel Adnan, The Weight of the World

Etel Adnan: The Weight of the world

I love discovering new Artists to fall in love with. Especially if there is an exhibition for me to drool over!

I follow Serpentine Gallery on Instagram and my heart literally skipped a beat when i saw an image of the above painting by Etel Adnan. I cant wait to get to London in the next month or so to see her work in person....

In the late 1960s, Adnan began producing tapestry designs, later having them made into some of the large scale tapestries on display at the Serpentine. Inspired by the feeling and colour of the Persian rugs of her childhood, the vibrancy of colour and form that exists in her paintings has been translated into wool, woven by hand.

The Home of...Jean-Philippe Demeyer






 Rather faboulous isnt it? This is the Belgian home of Art and Antiques dealer Jean-Philippe Demeyer. I just love all the daring bright colours and unusual shapes. I also love that huge abstract painting in the white sitting room.

"There are a number of things Jean-Philippe Demeyer can’t abide. The Flemish 
antique dealer and decorator dislikes strictly period interiors and houses that are 
too decorated. “Things should look natural, not too perfect,” he insists. Serene room
s make him anxious. He derides anything too trendy and steers clear of anything too 
serious. “You have to give things a twist,” he insists. "
