Follow me @the_layman_reviewer to see art I’m enjoying presently. Apologies if you saw this as a partial post earlier in the week. My infrequent use of this medium is showing lately.

It’s been a while…

Annie Liebovitz — The Housecat Diary

I’ve been looking through the latest Annie Liebovitz book and was immediately drawn to this photograph of Joan Didion taken in 2011. Now I want to read her work. Oh so many books to read. Anyway click the link to read more. Cheers. https://kerrismithartist.wordpress.com/art-im-loving-today/annie-leibovitz/

Incidental art in Hawaii.

popped over to Hawaii to look at some art. Nah just kidding but took photos of some pieces when I came across them. By the way the farm where I found this piece of art is called Tropical Farms Hawaii. Some tasty macadamias there in Kaneohe if you’re ever over that way.  Cheers.



Art in unexpected places.

I’ve been admiring this piece of art for a year now and just thought I’d share its story. Click the link to read more if you wish. Cheers and have a spectacular week.


Elisabeth Cummings- Interior Landscapes

While I was in Canberra a couple of weekends ago I took a ride over to the ANU and found Drill Hall Gallery, a peaceful and serene contrast to the Australian National Gallery where the Versailles exhibition was in full swing. Those who follow this blog would have already seen my post regarding the etchings of Versailles and I thoroughly recommend the block buster if you’re lurking about Canberra. But back to Drill Hall where I found I was the only art enthusiast there on that Saturday afternoon. Alas all was not perfect as the non arty husband of mine was left outside minding the bikes eager to whip around Lake Burley Griffin at a roaring pace. Hmmm…

Inside this rather expansive gallery were the powerful and liberating works of Elisabeth Cummings. Her abstract works explore layering and oblique image though the sense of place is apparent. I like many others have fallen in love with this acclaimed Aussie painters work. Take a peek. And for those in the Newcastle area I am positive I read that it is coming to our gallery in 2018.

I am astounded at their beauty. This is the perfect combination of application, line and composition. What an artist. On exhibit at Drill Hall Gallery until 9th April.
