Felt and wood
This is "Little Beuys" my first sculpture made after "Felt Suit" by Joseph Beuys. Is a two-piece suit comprising a jacket and a pair of trousers made from coarse grey felt, smaller than the original version.
The original one was made by Beuys in 1970, when he was primarily living and working in Düsseldorf.
The simple, descriptive title of this work emphasises the material used and indicates that the object is a suit – something that usually has an everyday, practical function rather than a creative one. In producing this work that could serve as a functional object, Beuys may have been questioning the traditional separation between fine art and domestic items. He stated further that when making works which seem to be everyday objects, he hoped that viewers might ‘realize that everyone is an artist, because, many people will ask themselves: “Why don’t I make something like that, something similar.” The sentence “Everybody is an artist” simply means to point out that the human being is a creative being, that he is a creator, and what’s more, that he can be productive in a great many different ways. To me, it’s irrelevant whether a product comes from a painter, from a sculptor or from a physicist.’
This is a drawing from last year that only now I have managed to list in the shop for prints.
Today I'd like to tell you about the prints I sell at etsy.
Differently from other prints of my artwork you may find at other shops (society6, Deny Designs, HabitatUK, IKea, BBB etc) these prints are looked after by myself :) Each print is uniquely made to order with particular specifications you have chosen (size and style) and some decisions I make so that the print looks at its best.
So for example if you order a a 4 : 5 type of size and the original is more a 2 : 3 I decide what the best way to crop the image is so to not alter the feeling/meaning of it. I also make sure my signature is included.
If I have the sightless doubt of how you may prefer your print to look, I contact you and discuss the options. I will also contact you if for whatever reason a delay may be expected.
Next? I send a high res digital file to my printers who are located, not in London where I live, but in the country side in Essex. I'll tell you about their excellent printing next time.... #artwall#prints#watercolorabstracts#watercolorabstractart#watercolorabstractpainting#watercolorabstractpattern#contemporary#newwork#etsyartistsofcolor#etsyselleruk
