Friday Art: Reg Mombassa
I have been a bit of a busy bee this week and have not had much time to do any blogging. In saying this, it has been a lovely week and gone really fast. I am one of those people blessed with a job I really enjoy and working with the nicest of people. Turning up each day is not difficult at all and therefore if I am busy at work it isn't a horrible environment to be. We are ending the week with a team lunch at a local restaurant, sitting outdoors and enjoying some Autumn sunshine.
I haven't really had much time to put together an art page for Friday but I thought you might enjoy this link (I hope you can all watch it). It is about a forensic artist and a group of women. It was created for the company Dove and gives an interesting insight into how you see your own beauty and how others see you.
Whilst on the topic of art (as it is Friday), I came across the following art (below) at work the other day and wanted to share it with you. The work was created by the Australian artist Reg Mombassa and the the Australia Tapestry Workshop. Mombassa design the artwork whilst expert needleworkers did the hard work and turned the art into a tapestry. Its not a large artwork, but the colours are lovely and it really stands out. The quality of needlework is very good.
I have included a couple of other paintings by Reg Mombassa, I don't like all his works (some are plainly weird), but I do like these. For any Australian into the music scene, Reg Mombassa was a band member of Mental as Anything, formed in 1976 (the band ended in 2000).
Wishing you all a lovely weekend with your families.
And my thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by the bombs in Boston and the explosion of the fertiliser factory in Texas this week. Two very sad events.
