Tate Liverpool….

A few weeks back we had the pleasure of attending a nice get together of some of the most influential Blogs the North West has to offer. It was a great event which shared valuable information about how the world of Social Media can be harnessed.I’m still sifting through all the information and putting it into practice, and coupled with contacts we made hopefully we are putting it to good use. We had a nice stroll around the Monet,Turner,Twombly exhibition which was fantastic. If you haven’t been then you have to, it is awesome. I shocked myself really as to which one of the artists I preferred. The draw the exhibition is having is really nice to see also. We bumped into a group this weekend who had come from London  to Liverpool especially to visit the Tate and  they will be back in September for another visit and hopefully they have even more friends with them this time.

Thank you to Laura and Mike of Double Negative, Culture Vulture, Creative Tourist and Tate Liverpool.

Luckily we had a press pass to take some snaps 🙂

Domino Gallery : The Darkening Green

The Domino Gallery : Felicity Wren

The Darkening Green : Teresa Wilson

This is a sculpure installation for the Domino Gallery which is found on Upper Newington Street in Liverpool. Just looking through the window on our arrival Teresa’s work just grabs you and draws you into the Gallery. ” Her main practice is making and installing uncanny human and bird sculpures to create claustrophobic, poetic enviroments transforming the space the space and charging it with emotional intensity” and once inside you have to agree with this statement. The figures have different expressions from a differing angles. ” Made from old rags and recycled materials the work engages with the past, suggesting stories to the viewer of strange experiences, Memories, and past traumas”. We have to agree with this statement. You could sense this as you walked through the gallery. Each piece had to be visited on more than one occasion I felt because as you went by the feeling changed. ” The viewer is invited to explore an imaginative alternative reality and approach the emotional and sometimes uncomfortable subject matter in a gentle and darkly playful way”
