Sunday Feast

I don’t know what I have been doing but I have lost what I have written on this post twice now and can’t write it all again… so will just say this… much of what I learnt  about Matisse (went to the exhibition, Matisse Drawing Life at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane) resonated with my life with Joe and his subsequent history as well.  His ongoing experimentation, his working until his death, his non-commercial approach to his work and his ability to undertake huge and complex commitments and do a great job but always outside the ‘box’.  Connect to this link to see the pictures I took in the other exhibitions that were on at the same time.  https://picasaweb.google.com/lynettefaragher/GOMAJanuary2012?authuser=0&feat=directlink

This link will get you to the google page with 100s of images by Matisse and there is even one to the GOMA exhibition itself but hasn’t got that many pictures on it.  http://www.google.com.au/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1280&bih=592&q=matisse+drawings+prints&gbv=2&oq=matisse+drawings+prints&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=s&gs_upl=0l0l1l17420l0l0l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0#hl=en&gbv=2&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=henri+matisse+drawings&pbx=1&oq=matisse+drawings&aq=1m&aqi=g1g-m1g-S4g-mS1&aql=&gs_sm=c&gs_upl=282112l284403l2l289790l9l9l1l0l0l6l327l1995l2-7.1l8l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&fp=3e2fb5fee7195340&biw=1064&bih=592

About retrocentricaussie

We are a pair of ageing 'gypsies' who find junk and sell antiques, especially objects from the art nouveau/art deco years and old and well-loved tools. We also occasionally buy antiques as well!! We haunt clearance sales, garage sales, charity shops and sometimes dumps. Lately we have even been to a 'proper' auction. The thrill is in the chase for good stuff at prices we can afford and still sell the items on at a profit sufficient to support us. We recycle what other people don't want anymore, we find new homes for nice things. We sell at markets and antique fairs, swap meets and wherever else we can find. Our clientele are mostly ordinary people who want something they can afford that will enhance their quality of life. We are especially pleased when generation Y buy from us. It suggests that appreciation of quality and good design is still part of our modern aesthetic.
