Art catalogues

It is great being an artist and pursueing a visual goal it can be so rewarding. Lately my Aunty Betty gave me some of her old art books and catalogue material. Looking at art is something I don’t do enough of and to see some of these modernist works as well as artists from the 80s and 90s is reassuring. Reassuring in that these works and especially the more historically significant works transport you into another time where the future offered a brave new world. Some of the commercial gallery catalogues have really dated but there are always works that are exceptional and show just how diverse art is. Mainly I still look at a lot of street art and graffiti, a lot really just to see what is happening on freights or walls, as well as trains it really makes me think but when I look at Modernist art especially I feel quite at home.
