Looking for something fun do to this weekend? Pop on down to the fabulous Frock Me Vintage Fair this Sunday. We’ll be doing a fun pop up cafe with delicious food and refreshments to keep you shopping energised!
Looking forward to seeing you amongst the razzle-dazzle!
Frock Me is London's leading vintage fair, held at Chelsea Old Town Hall, first established over a decade ago.
We are very happy to introduce to all our friends, Alma Tischlerwood! The photos i’ve taken don’t do justice to the quality of the work, but i strongly recommend you come and see them in the cafe to really appreciate them!
In Alma’s latest series of Sky paintings childhood memories, such as lying in the grass, gazing in the sky are revisited.
The artist sets up a thought-provoking scenario by placing a Sky painting next to an abstract painting depicting the Burberry Brit Eau de Cologne for men pattern.
The human mind is versatile and can inhabit different realities simultaneously.
But who is to say whether the reality of rectangles and proportions are any less
‘intense’ than the experience of gazing into a Summer sky?
For the viewer, they are a matter of personal preference and perception.
The visitor is invited to invent their own connections between these paintings.
In her work, Alma focuses on the presentation of colour and patterns,
characterised with a witty irony, suggesting a philosophical world in which
materiality and language invoke one another.
Shortly after her studies of Fine Art (MA) at the Munich Art Academy 1980 –1986
(aside from many other Awards) Alma won the prestigious Arts Council of
Munich’s Annual Award for painting.
Since settling in London (1988) she has been greatly supported by The Arts
Council England, The Goethe Institute and Council Général de I’Oise for projects
to travel, work and exhibit in India, Brazil, Chile, France and Switzerland.
Alma’s art is represented in many collections some of which include Deutsche Bank,
Goldman Sachs, Sumitumo Bank, European Patent Office Collection, Den Haag, Reuters London, Vera Engelhorn, New York, Arts Council Munich, Arts ~Council EnglandCinven amongst many others.
Her work is presented it the Sonja Roesch Gasllery Houston, TX, USA
