The Studios are open in Gaucín! Part 2

Don’t miss it this weekend!
Walk with me on the second part!


Finally, after three years, doors of Gaucín’s studios are open again!

It’s a long tradition – on the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June 21 artists of Gaucín open the studio doors. This event attracts always a loyal and also a new audience coming as far as Málaga and Tarifa. I was very much missing it in the two years of the pandemic.

I visited the first weekend for a day – a beautiful and fulfilling day full of interesting art, lovely chats and laughter and a restful break at a small bar. There are 18 stations to visit and 21 artists exhibiting – I saw a lot, but not all though. So this is a description of my personal walk, not a full feature of all you can see. The first part of the walk I published at the 32st of May. So here you read about part two of the walk from studio to studio in Gaucín.
And not to forget:

Gaucín is not only a great place for art, a beautiful white village with views as far as Morocco on clears days but also a place of fantastic restaurants! Reserve your table!

Only this coming weekend left for visiting!

See here, what you can see the coming weekend!

The „Open Studio map“ numbers the exhibition places from 1 to 18. My description goes the other way round – at the end of my information (9 to1) you‘ll find many artists in the same building or rather near together. So if your feet are getting a bit tired, it helps to take advantage of this by changing direction. I missed some studios – as I spend a lot of time talking with the artist. So here a description of those, that I managed to visit.

Catherine Hunter

You find Catherine in the beautiful hotel “La Fructuosa by Jose”. On this walk you have the chance to get to know this hotel gem and the endearing characters which are decorating every room. This walk will lead you up to a roof terrace witch opens up to a tremendous view.

Jim Rattenbury

Like in the last walks, Jim installed his exhibition in the garage of a friend. That doesn’t sound exciting – but just in the contrary, it’s a fascinating and very atmospheric installation for his fantastic art works. Sculptures created from found and collected materials that develop into partly mystical or somehow ethnic figures, some like finds from a bygone world. I very much liked his painting too, that in another way leads us into a world of imaginative beings.

Jenny Collins

Jenny is a newbie to the Open Studios Gaucín but not a newbie to the village of Gaucín, where she lives since more than 6 years. This is her first appearance in the Open Studios. I really enjoy to see some new artist and their works. Jenny has a history of being a Goldsmith and a photographer. After following a small, a bit hidden and somewhat enchanted path we find her small studio, where she presents her paintings which are characterised by kind of geometric structures.

La Huerta

La Huerta is a building that now gives your feet a little rest. Five artist are showing their works in this somehow industrial building which gives an interesting back ground to the art works.

Lesley Riddihough

From early visits to Open Studious, I remember Lesley’s bright vibrant fruit paintings. This year, as a self-confessed cat lover, I especially enjoyed the feline portraits of two particularly beautiful feline personalities, painted in Lesley’s realistic, expressive style.

Marta Bernad

Invited guest artist this year is Spanish painter Marta Bernard, Master’s in Advertising Creativity, Design and Communication and more, is actually living in Estepona. She shares her pleasure of this area through her paintings with us. Marta’s paintings show bright colours and the momentum in the works. She also demonstrated her swing to us with a little dance in front of her paintings.

Chris Klees

Dutch artist Chris Klees was known to me as a photographer. This year he presents a rich work of ceramics, a new love (?), in any case an important one, as his precious works and the huge oven in his studio demonstrate.

Christine Spencer-Green

British artist Christine fills her large studio with lovely portraits of women and cats. These painting very much speak to me as her style is something between realistic and blurred. I like these inaccuracies which do not tell the story to the last point. They give the viewer a lot of room for their own additions.

Sian Faber

New Zealand artist Sian fills her studio, which has a smashing view as far as Africa, with many colourful wall sculptors. When I first got to know her in Gaucín she and her husband had shortly settled in Spain, coming from Australia. Then her exhibition room was filled with paintings on paper inspired by the floating movement of the sea. Since in Spain she is incorporating the mountainous landscape into wall sculptures of stone and glass, that reflect the hardness and eternity of the mountains. Her love for the floating forms you find in this sculptures, that appear different with changing light and as well in her Flamenco paintings, which she exhibits as well.

Casa de la Juventud

Just opposite the Huerta, crossing the street, you find the Casa de la Juventud, a large, newly renewed hall of the administration of Gaucín. Three artists are exhibiting here in three different disciplines: Photography by Vivienne Whiffen, Landscape paintings by Ira Goldberg and Sculptures by Silvia Franco.

The Studios are open in Gaucín!

Don’t miss it this weekend!
Walk with me on the first part…..more to follow!


Finally, after three years, doors of Gaucín’s studios are open again!

It’s a long tradition – on the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June 21 artists of Gaucín open the studio doors. This event attracts always a loyal and also a new audience coming as far as Málaga and Tarifa. I was very much missing it in the two years of the pandemic.

The drive up to Gaucín, which leads through an extremely beautiful landscape is one of my yearly highlights concerning art events. Many years ago, being the first time in Andalucía , this event was a great discovery for me. Over the following years it became kind of my artistic homeland. As I love this place so much, I love to share this pleasure with you.

Gaucín

A great pleasure for me was the possibility to exhibit in Gaucín in 2018, being the invited guest artist. Driving up the hill feels somehow like getting in a kind of homeland.

Gaucín is not only a great place for art, a beautiful white village with views as far as Morocco on clears days but also a place of fantastic restaurants! Reserve your table!

Only one more weekend left for visiting!

See here, what you can see the coming weekend!

The „Open Studio map“ numbers the exhibition places from 1 to 18. My description goes the other way round – at the end of my information (1 to 11) you‘ll find many artists in the same building or rather near together. So if your feet are getting a bit tired, it helps to take advantage of this by changing direction. I missed some studios – as I spend a lot of time talking with the artist. So here a description of those, that I managed to visit.

Anna McGrane

A bit hidden in the landscape, before you cross the river, you find the beautiful ground of Anna. Walk down with her to her studio and enjoy the view to Gaucín and explore her studio and work that consists of very different disciplines like wood prints, ceramics and paintings.


Raffaela Zenoni

A newbie in Gaucín but not in the artworld. Entering the house is like entering a world of wonder. Behind the small entrance door of a house in Calle Larga is hidden a gem of a house and far views. All of this a great setting for the very strong and gigantic works by Swiss artist Raffaela. I was impressed by intensive colours, a very free style and also by the huge format of the paintings – can’t even imagine how to paint those!

Ana Pellón and Juan Antonio Sangil

The years before Juan Sangil and Ana Pellón exhibited in a smaller house in Calle Larga. I have never seen the workshop of Juan, but if you see his art which consists of burning together different materials and you see the very solid artworks that come out of it, you reckon that the workshop has to be something. This year the couple exhibits in it’s own home, nestled away a bit under the castle, containing the huge studio of Juan and the studio of Ana. I was impressed.

#Click onto the images to enlarge!

I always assumed that Ana Pellón was a studied architect, as she has a love in her works for houses that in their straight and reduced lines and austerity, seem to be reminiscent of architectural drawings. But I learned it was my fantasy. I very much like this reduced style and was most attracted this time by a white monolith towering over flat land – probably because I was just back from my visit to Ayers Rock and it reminded me of it.

J.Sánchez Zabaleta

This studio is also a little way to go, but really worth while. Sánchez is a painter who can look back at an impressive list of exhibitions in renown galleries. His very muted colour palette underlines the atmosphere for one of his preferred subjects, used utilitarian objects that show the traces of time. Some of my favourite images are the dogs that belong or belonged to the family. After a warm welcome from Maria, you can watch Sánchez at his meticulous work and ask him questions, how he is performing these wonders.

Paddy Robinson

Always an adventure in different respect is the visit to Paddy`s studio, which occupies the 3rd floor of the narrow house and leads the visitor past many wonderful decorations and colours. Equally diverse are the artworks of Paddy, who, in addition to her very precise, fantastic works, also exhibits abstract paintings, to which I am more attracted. What to say, I am an abstract painter.

Jenny Waterhouse

When you enter this small, somewhat hidden house, you step into meadows full of flowers and almost feel their scent. Jennifer is a classic landscape painter whose paintings are mostly created open air directly in nature in the surroundings of Gaucín. The paintings breathe a lightness and freshness that captivates me every time.

Now you need a break, time to have a lunch in one of the beautiful and very tasty restaurants of Gaucín!
Watch this place and read more tomorrow about part two of the walk!

What to do in Marbella this weekend?

Landscape with mountain in a yellowish light from the Sahara sands colouring the air.
Not only grey skies, but yellow sky that was sent to us by Sahara sands. Nearly hiding the Concha and covering many parts of the Costa del Sol.

I need some entertainment and something to lift my spirit.

It feels like we are having at least the 6th week of grey skies and rain warnings – some of them are happening, not as frequent (and necessary) as announced. And now a yellow dusty Sahara heaven like I imagine Shanghai. What to do?

I need some entertainment and something to lift my spirit. What can it be? At least nothing to do outside.
I am an artist. If you feel like me – or much better – here I share 3 art events that you can visit this weekend or the coming week.

1) Friday 25th of March: ELARTSenal Inoxis (Alhaurin el Grande)

This will be the opening of a group exhibition in this most interesting culture centre in which you find art, vintage articles and Inoxis – Stainless steel sculptures, classic cars and much more. ElARTSENAL INOXIS also offers a broad music program. The “maker” of this art event, are a gallerist and a stainless steal professional. Be sure, it all will be a great surprise! You find some interesting information and photos here: Artsenal Inoxis – a very lively culture centre in Alhaurin el Grande.

2) Saturday, 26th of March: Nueva Andalucía

As I have never seen the artist workshop and gallery of the artist couple Enar Cruz and Lothar Cames. It is in Nueva Andalucía. This Saturday there is an opportunity to visit it! I am very curious to find out, what can be expected. I love studio visits, open doors. A great opportunity to get to know the artists and their work in a their own creative atmosphere. Always a very special atmosphere.

Sunday, 27.03.2022 “Mar poética” at
12 noon, Cortijo Miraflores de Marbella

This is a very local event. Normally I wouldn’t know about it. But an Spanish artist friend invited me. So I tried to find out what it is all about. As far as I deciphered we can expect:
27 artist de “Artistas mujeres de Marbella” will exhibit their paintings inspired by 27 poems that were made by the Generatción de 27. All this will be accompanied with music and singing of a local singer, Sito Morales. For me a great opportunity to get to know 27 local artists!
By the way, what I looked up in Wikipedia: The Generation 27 is a group of Spanish poets and writers, very famous in the 20th of last century till the beginning of the civil war 1936. The name is honouring the baroque poet Luis de Góngora, who’s whose 300th death anniversary was celebrated in 1927. Find the website here.

New works in the Artist Support Pledge!

Good news! Three – inbetween four (!) – paintings will go to a new home – as soon as the post offices open up again! It’s not a week yet that I sent out my newsletter about my participation in this wonderful initiative! (Want to know more about Artist Support Pledge? Click here!)

My Costa del Arte Collective colleague Annabel Keatley and I, who participate in the initiative of the Artist Support Pledge have event got the attention of the local press! The article is announced for next Friday! Its wonderful that we got so much attention through the internet! Especially as all art shows in Spain are canceled. We had planned and prepared for an exposition in Fuengirola “Sun and Shade” which should have started 20th of April. Of course is not going to happen. Hopefully we can open it in autumn.

We are still in a very strickt lockdown which was just prolonged till 10th of May. I sincerely had hoped for the permission to do some sport for an hour or so outside. But that seems not to be in the new decisions. My rescuer will be the trampoline – finally the new elastic bands arrived! Its a urgent contrast to standing and sitting work at the computer or the easel. So the trampoline is the only possibility to simulate running at the moment!

With the extended confinement I will have more of this special time to contemplate the view from my window – which I often do as it is beautiful – but I never used is as a source of inspiration for my paintings. The stand-still inspired me to do two exercises: a literal-stand still in my place and concentrating on what is in front of me AND to do the opposite of a stand still for my mind: move to do new things. This very special time gives a lot of chances to think about life.

Here they are, the paintings of the series “From my window”. The middle one is one of my rather realistic paintings and features the view. I love the bold colours in the flowers and in the “Building houses”. I am aiming to capture more the spirit of a situation than the real view of it. The flowers are out bursting in the planter of the balcony with the most incredible red and greens. The tropical garden holds a bit of a dreamy landscape (and is sold already to one of my newsletter subscribers). Enjoy!

New paintings

Still available

With a little tear in my eye but with a happy heart I will say “Good by” to these three as they have found very nice new homes:

They were the favourite obviously – they would have found other houses as well. This is the wonderful and the sad thing about most art works: they are unique. So if you buy an original painting your are sure to have an unique piece of art in your home or office.

If you like art + puzzles…..here you have a great choice!

More than 8 puzzles easy, medium and rather difficult ones are waiting for you! Each of it an art work from me! You don’t need a huge table, just your computer!

Do something for your community and be rewarded with art! Receive a “Desert Trip Print” in your mail box*. In real. A proper 25×32 cm Fine Art Print from my works. I start this initiative to support people who support the community through donation.

What is it all about?

This is another wonderful initiative worth to be copied.

What’s your part?

Sent me a copy of your donation receipt to a food bank or service or an animal shelter and inscribe to my blog – thats it. I will donate one of these prints to you! First come first! Very simple. The timing though depends on the regulations here in Spain. We don’t know, when we are allowed to go out again – we are to stay at home till end of April. And we are in a very strict Log-down. Just going out for food, medicine, doctor. Maybe following will be special instructions for the “endangered species” which we are a part off.

WORLDWIDE RELEASE. An experiment.

“THE DESERT TRIP PRINTS” Release date for Subscribers 17.01.2020, Public release 25.01.2020

The Internet offers incredible possibilities! 2019 was definitely my Internet-Work-Shop-Fan year! During one of these beautiful internet workshops – in this case “ The small art challenge” of Sergio Gomez, an artist and curator from Chicago I used my holidays in Palm Springs and the surrounding deserts to create a lovely digital series of my desert trip.

This in itself was an experiment. Finding a printer who is specialized in Fine Art Prints needed a lot of time, many trial and errors and test prints. This was another adventure. But that is done!!! Now I hold the prints in my hands, beautiful colors, wonderful paper, nice look and nice feel, printed by a very professional print shop. Offering my art worldwide with an online release now is the next experiment I am going to go for.

Special offer for my newsletter readers

A I have a special offer for my newsletter subscribers: a preview for some 4 days, to be the the first to see “The desert trip prints” and choose from this series of 11 prints, which will be published as a Limited Edition of 10 prints each painting, all hand signed and numbered by the artist. The release date for subscribers is 17th of January till the 20th of January 2020.

Saturday the 25th oh January the series will be released via my website, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn worldwide. This special offer will be available for two weeks.

If you are interested to be with the first to be informed about my new works, exhibitions and artists adventures, join my VIP email list here. Of course you can cancel it when ever you feel like it.

As the restaurant will be closed from 20th of January to 4th February . My paintings will be to be seen through February and probably March too.

NEWS after a busy summer – un verano occupado – nach einem intensivem Sommer

A very productive summer! More than 20 paintings finished!

Looking back: This summer seems to have been very intensive. Family visits, expositions, art fairs, a lot of traveling and CVP 19.

Time by time an artist needs some new input besides visiting museums and exhibitions  or looking for inspiration in the surrounding. So I decided to embark on an internet course which is called: “Creative Visionary Path”. Nicholas Wilton and his team delivered a workshop that was impressive with all its wealth of information, practical examples and personal attention that was given,  despite having hundreds of attendees. I really was impressed by the quality of teaching and organization.

It has been a very good, highly interesting and very supporting experience!!!! Three months (and more) full of information, explanation and videos, life calls, painting, artist community and a lot of experimenting and learning! I am still digesting the information I got and the techniques that I experimented with and the experience I made. In one sentence: it was all worth it. If you want to know, just let me know via Email

If you want to have a short insight into my working style, have a look here:

 

Creating while traveling – a special challenge

As I am not a special friend of water color (quite honestly: I don’t know how to handle them) neither of crayons, I have not done a lot for my art practice, when traveling. From CVP something special I took out for me (besides many good other things) was working with sketchbook and gouache. Normally I am not a fan of neither the one nor the other –

Artist studio on a hotel table

this has changed. I was very happy while traveling to have the gouache colors with me, who are a bit like acrylic but make working so much easier when traveling – and so much cleaner. So I could go on with my 30×30 cm boards even in a hotel or in a friends house.  And it probably will serve me again for our next journey which is already planed!

 

 

 

 

The harvest: More than 25 new paintings!

More than 20 panels, all 30×30 cm, (partly wood, carton or hard board) I have been working on. A small choice I will show you here:

If you want to see all the 25 panels that were done since May, tapp here.  You will find a (nearly) full overview over the works.

Picassos birthday 18.10.19 – next art event in Málaga!

In October, accompanying Picassos birthday, a lot of events will take place in Málaga. One of it will be an exhibition of Picasso inspired art works in the Galeria Javier Román, which is only some steps away from the birth place of Picasso at the Plaza de la Merced.

I painted a Picasso inspired painting for this show – as well did my artist friend from Costa del Arte Collective, Anouk Slegers. In preparation for this painting I visited the Picasso museum (which is worth while a visit!) and studied some books featuring his life and his work. As always, the more you learn about an artist, the more interesting he gets. I was especially fascinated by his blue and pink period – no wonder, I love pink and you will find it in many of my paintings! And his paintings of animals fascinated very much, especially the cats – partly in deconstruction ways and ever so expressive! So I was inspired by these most admired items! Come and see! The exhibition will be open till 18th of November – while I will be still on the other side of the big sea!

This is just a little part of the painting….

The cat who didn’t catch the bird.

Next Art Event in Germany! CONTEMPORARY ART RUHR !

Now, that the summer comes to an end, the next events are already set.

Some of my art will travel and be presented by “Javier Roman Galeria” Málaga, in October in Essen, Germany, at the ART RUHR – an art fair that focuses on innovative  art. Unfortunately  I can not attend the show, – I will be in the USA  meanwhile.

 

The fair will be situated in the beautiful Zeche Zollverein – such a pity I cannot see it and YOU all! Its quite exiting for me! While my paintings travel to the C.A.R., I will be visiting some New Yorker Galleries that I know through Instagram and I am curious to see them in reality.

Planning the next exhibition with the Costa del Arte Collective in Nerja!

The Costa del Arte Collective is applying to have a show in Nerja next year March! Keep you are fingers crossed, that we manage to get into this very beautiful communal space! I will keep you posted.

I hope you make it to the CAR in Essen, when you are in Germany! Or hopefully we can meet in Nerja! You will gain interesting impressions any way and who knows, maybe a original art work for your soul and home! If you are interested in one of the 30×30 cm art works that I am showing here, let me know!

Have a good start back into the second part of the year!

Starting 3rd of May to 24th of May: Mini Cuadros – small works – Kleine Arbeiten

Costa del Arte Collective showing small works in Almuñécar!

The Costa del Arte Collective is quite excited. We are going to have an exhibition in Almuñécar in May – in the Espacio Creativo of Annabel Keatley. The exhibition will be opened on the 3rd of May at 7 pm and can be visited until the 24th of May. So I spent quite some time concentrating on Mini Cuadros. I am pretty sure, that it will be a wonderful exhibition. I already had a sneak preview of some of the works to be seen of my artist colleagues Annabel Keatley, Anouk Slegers, Lieuwke Loth and Sally Hirst.

Exhibition in Espacio Creativo in Almuñécar in May 2019

Mini Art Workshops will accompany the exhibition of Mini Cuadros!

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of exclusive workshops held by Annabel, limited to only three participants for each workshop!
I am rather tempted to take part, as Annabel works with with special techniques – as all of the members of Costa del Arte Collective do.

Take your chance to participate in a series of creative workshops. The workshops will be held in the mornings, from 10-12.30 pm with refreshments included.
The classes are designed to combine and connect with eachother, with a focus on enjoying the process of making work and learning new techniques. The workshops are as much for beginners as for experienced artists.

To get a more precise description of the Mini Cuadros go to Costa del Arte Collective

Information Mini Cuadros – Workshops

Some of my Mini Cuadros you can see in Almuňécar

I was rather engaged to create some Mini Cuadros, with time sitting in my neck, as the Art Walk Cómpeta  was also in front of me very soon.

I have been working on the Greenland series as well, making it a collection of five, acrylic on paper. They will be framed with museum glas. Pretty to look at. If you like to see the exciting photos of our Greenland journey tap here.

My new color preferences are shown in this series – still no name for it. They are 20x20x4 cm on stretched canvas and bring some energy to the room. It seems, I am just in love with orange and a bit of violet.

 

 

Mini Cuadros – Small works – Kleine Arbeiten

Costa del Arte Collective showing small works in Almuñécar!

The Costa del Arte Collective is quite excited. We are going to have an exhibition in Almuñécar in May – in the Espacio Creativo of Annabel Keatley.
