Versailles Palace. Patterns and work in progress.

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Versailles palace and grounds in France are extremely lavish and over the top, with gold everywhere. During my visit , I enjoyed the eclectic mix of textures and patterns of the wallpapers, the swaths of lush  curtaining at the windows and the textiles on the furniture, elegant and beautiful.

Each piece in the palace was finished of to perfection with lots of intricate patterns and pure gold, gilding. The floors were creaky, but full of character. There were, extravagant marble walls, flooring and decorative marble fireplaces everywhere.

Below is a sample of some of the surfaces at Versailles and work in progress, inspired by my visit.

Nomad Art. Instant Art. Mobile Art. Portable Art.

Looking back through my art diaries recently, I came across some ideas I had written many years ago, when I was feeling very disillusioned by the art world.

What I wrote back then, now, seems quite relevant in a world full of instant mobile art. All accessed through portable computers, iphones, ipads etc. and art branded using tools like Instagram Facebook Twitter and Pinterest




Excerpt from my diary

Instead of 1 piece of artwork costing heaps, create heaps of artworks costing less, or for nothing, so everybody can have it.




Lets create art that doesn’t wait to be seen. It needs to travel, be mobile, just like all other technology. Portable – Affordable – Instant. Get art out to the masses!

Nomad art!
