cy twombly








cy twombly| sadly passed away last week
 an artist i have admired for a long time.... 

graffiti is linear and it’s done with a pencil, and it’s like writing on walls. but in my paintings it’s more lyrical.

his polaroids are also beautiful. I have seen it recently and it gave me an inside into his paintings. Highly recommend.

I visit your blog often. Absolutely love it.

I feel sad too, such an amazing artist. He had a show here a few years ago just after I had given birth to Matilda, I remember pushing this little bundle round the Tate Modern, and looking at his vast canvases. My son described one of his paintings perfectly, what he saw was amazed me. When ever I go to the Tate they have Quattro Stagioni I always have to go and look at it.

I had only been peripherally aware of Cy Twombly up til now, but his work is INCREDIBLE, I wish I'd discovered it before! He's left an amazing legacy :)
I also wanted to say thanks for following my blog, I love every single thing you post so I'm very flattered!
