Your life is Art


Galerie Blue Square is dedicated to celebrating the talents of artists inspired by the principles and philosophies of the Russian avant-garde. Schwartz described Nixon as prolific in his output, and as being very ‘straightforward’ in his making, always finding the powerful and transformative mark. While his first exhibition was held at the legendary Melbourne avant-garde gallery Pinacotheca in 1973, he went on to mount hundreds of works -many multi panel – a trend he embraced in 2016.

There are many valid works of art, however Impressionism is lazy art, only for those who do not have the talent to paint the real thing and most Modern Art is not art at all, there’s no challenge in painting a series of multi-coloured vertical lines, you might as well hang a deck chair, it is after all a form of canvas. All said and done, his “Elegy to the Spanish Republic” series is his hugely, rather most known and admired works of all. The title is a collective name to include over 150 oil paintings and numerous sketches & drawings. The main theme of this series was the Spanish Civil War, which swallowed the lives of more than 7,00,000 people. “Elegy to the Spanish Republic” is a commemoration of human suffering in the three-year battle of the Spanish Civil War. Despite this extra responsibility, McCubbin’s work began to attract considerable attention and won a number of prizes from the National Gallery, including a first prize in the first annual Gallery students’ exhibition, for best studies in colour and drawing. By the mid-1880s he concentrated more on painting the Australian bush, the works for which he became most noted. Nesbett, Peter, ed. Letters to a Young Artist. New York: Darte Publishing, 2008. Most visible is Guan Yi, the suave, well-dressed heir to a chemical-engineering fortune, who has assembled a museum-quality collection of more than 500 works. A major lender to the Huang Yong Ping retrospective organized by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in 2005, he regularly entertains museum trustees from all over the world, who make the pilgrimage to his warehouse on the outskirts of Beijing. Now he is building his own museum. Douglas Culham was a Canadian serving with the 3rd Canadian Division Ammunition Column at Passchendaele when he painted this eerie night-time picture of the supply line. The nightly ammunition run to the 18-pounder batteries during the Battle of Passchendaele in October and November, 1917, was essential but dangerous work. Culham’s painting can today be seen in the Canadian War Museum.
