‘The artist gazes upon reality and creates his own impression. The viewer gazes upon the impression and creates his own reality’
Ever since seeing Stephen Wiltshire on TV, I have dreamed of one day owning one of his sketches. The detail in his cityscapes are just incredible, and quite often he has not even seen the city himself, drawing from memory or only briefly observing the city before he begins. If you have not heard of Stephen Wiltshire, it’s a really inspirational story, worth taking the time to read his biography.
I would also love to one day own one of Paul Davies’ paintings. There is just so much character and depth in his paintings! His work can be viewed at the Tim Olsen Gallery.
Have you started your own art collection, or are you like me – dreaming of the day…
