Niall Jacobson

This week was a sad week yet one that highlighted the value of beauty. Not beauty in its cosmetic form, but beauty in terms of meaning and purpose.

Rest in peace Niall, you will be missed by many, your work will remain a beautiful epilogue of a live so very well lived…

21.4.16- Sometimes in life, something touches you unexpectedly. You take a moment out of the whirlwind of life and stop to notice something beautiful that resonates with you deeply.

Niall Jacobson’s work does just that.

Simplicity and its best: Texture, form and organic matter all combine to allude to a sense of place and that place is his beloved Eype and the stunning, ever-evolving Jurassic Coast

The film below shares his story, his home and his artistic process. Beautiful and evocative.

Bravo Niall.

Bridport Film Festival

Just went to buy tickets for “The Shining” at the empty Burton Cliff hotel, next door to Mr B Braggs place, and its sold out. Devastated. Although am not sure I would have made it through the whole scary showing (the bar would have helped) Read more

Wallace and Sewell

Over Christmas popped into the splendid Sladers Yard, always full of interesting artists and such a great cafe (best cakes in town) which is open come rain or shine. In the gallery we fell upon a festive display of the stunning textiles of Wallace and Sewell. Read more

Jurassic Dreams

I seem to be on a theme of illustrative art and so it feels fit to mention the lovely animator and illustrator, Keith Robinson; his work is now selling online at Folksy as a collective; Jurassic Dreams.

Being an owner of a selection of fowl, I especially love the Chickens print, its most thinking Christmas gifts to my fellow chicken keeping friends. So rural I am.

His pieces are not only good looking but funny.

Wit and style; a good combo. Read more
