Patrica Nix. I found her work included, along with several other artists, in a wonderful Annual Report publication for the company Capgemini. I was so impressed with the idea of putting art in a business publication and I'm sure they would be pleased to know that their 2004 report is still giving such pleasure. Wouldn't it be great if more companies did this.
Hughie O'Donoghue. I was fortunate to see a most amazing exhibition of his work at the War Museum North in the UK. The exhibition called "Painting Caserta Red" based on his father's experiences during the was, was fantastic and the scale of some of the work was amazing. He did a special piece for the space and it must have been about 40 feet high. I have been trying to find a photo of it on the web but can only find a small picture of one that is similar. Go to the last image on this link. The link images don't do justice to his work and unfortunately there aren't many images of his work on the web.
Here is a link to another of his works.
Kimo Minton. I found his work at Tew Gallery when I was living in Atlanta. He works on large wood panels. They are absolutely gorgeous. One of my friends who was visiting actually bought one and had it shipped back to New Zealand where she lives. She is in good company as I believe Elton John has one too.
Sean Scully. I saw an exhibition of his large abstracts when I was living in the UK but I also saw one in the High Museum in Atlanta. The size, texture and colour in the work I found very appealing.
What do you think of these?
