The other day I went to an art exhibition at the Turbine Hall in town. I saw some really nice pieces of art there and some of them I would of really liked to have taken home with me, especially this one painting of a swimming pool by an artist named Swain Hoogervorst. I really like his work, it reminds me of being a kid and coming home after school for a swim and a white bread and polony sandwich.

Ryan McGennisken is a self taught, multi-disciplinary artist working across a range of mediums. I really like his ink on paper series. 

- “My new work is an ongoing investigation of what it means to be human. What it means to be conscious in this weird existence; what it means to be alive and if there’s any great purpose for it all. I struggle to see humans as being anything but human. I don’t see societal structure, laws, classes, money, race, sexual preferences or genders etc, etc. When a human is stripped back bare, all there is is skin, blood, bone and the mystery of consciousness.”

Saw these awesome paintings on this site, they’re by a New York based artist called Eric White. Check them out…

- Eric White is a New York based-painter. He studied at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. His palette and imagery seems to come straight from somewhere between a Hitchcock film, the Twilight Zone, and a 1980s living room. Many of his paintings are also titled and based off scenes from old movies…
