Inspiration from Contemporary Art

Back in November of last year I paid a visit to the Tate Modern in London.  Whilst not everything is necessarily to my taste, I feel it’s always worthwhile to look over something new: after all, you never know where inspiration might come from.  I like to make a quick sketch of things that catch my eye, as this helps to acquire a “feel” for the piece: here is a sample, together with photos of the “real thing” culled from the web (no photography in the gallery, of course).


In compiling this post I notice most of my sketch subjects are hardly contemporary – more like 100 years old -  so perhaps I’m not as up-to-date as I like to think!

It isn’t always obvious where the ideas inspired by my visit will take me.  Here is just one example.

If you like the “love seat” design, please feel free to leave a comment :-)
