I went to The Other Art Fair last week for the first time. It was greatly enjoyable and there were lots of very affordable works of art by artists in all sorts of mediums. I picked up a number of artist's business cards, my eyes always seem to wander to the brightly coloured ones, and decided that they were so pretty and fun, they deserved some hanging time of their own. So I made a collage and stuck them onto the wall 😍. Below you can see the names of the artists and what I thought about some of them (Sorry for the slightly erratic numbering!!)Alice xxx
13. Sandy Dooley
Sandy paints with acrylic on canvas and I really love her use of colour - her studio is based in her garden in Kent, and the colours and themes of her paintings tend to follow the seasons, and she paints outdoors as much as she can which I think is wonderful 😃.
I really like John Hainsworth's very small scale paintings of unusual architectural forms in abstract landscapes all in muted tones. They were all hung closely together and looked superb, he does large paintings too.
I am a big fan of Fei Alexeli's work - both her collages, in which palm trees have made it into outer space, and her slightly otherworldly photography.
Minty's drawings were some of my favourite in the show. She initially trained as an architect, and l absolutely love her detailed drawings of buildings and monuments.
Artists altogether 😊
