the saatchi gallery


another pic of me looking at some art in great depth 







Thank you for all the q's on my Q and A post, I will do a video very soon;)

So last Saturday I went to an LCC open day to look at graphic design. I wasn't so keen so we left early and went to explore London and visit the Saatchi as I haven't been since the Rolling Stones Exhibition.
It's such a funky gallery, every piece is so interesting, I particularly liked the fact this exhibition was called "Champagne Life," it's so relevant to the consumeristic society we live in; but also kinda ironic they sell art too eh..
In art at the moment I'm looking at themes of coming of age and growing up, mainly focusing on using textiles as a medium. The exhibition wasn't too relevent to this but I did discover Henry Barande's art who does these huge paintings/ prints. They were very interesting and I'm excited to see if I can interpret his art in some way.
Have you ever been to the Saatchi??

the tate modern








Yesterday I went on an art trip to the Tate Modern in London! It was a fab trip, we got to mooch around the gallery and check out the new part of the Tate which was v snazzy. It was so lovely to see everything at the full scale, I had seen photos of the radio tower but hadn't obviously experienced it's full scale.
Also was lovely to see the feminist section with art by the guerrilla girls! I had to buy a poster which will take pride place in my bedroom!
Have you been to the Tate Modern?

You guys might know how much I love this film, I have a feeling I've mentioned it before. I re-watched it the other day and couldn't go by without doing a post on it. It's one of those films that takes me a while to get round to watching because it makes me so emotional (and it's so god damn long.) But it is so beautiful, and the cinematography is something else. These photos really don't give justice. I love the limited speech, but how beautifully crafted the speeches and conversations are. It is a truly mesmerising film. How gorgeous is Nastassja Kinski too? and Harry Dean Stanton totally nails his performance.

Also in other news, I have a lot of stuff planned, watch this space...
