Living with design - fifty years retrospective

About

About fifty years ago I worked in Finland. My first canvas was chosen by a visitor to the atelier. It was a magical experience. Because of the Russian Revolution two sisters born in the 1890s never met again in 70 years after leaving Tallinn in 1919. As Baltic German traders in Tallinn all the property was lost. One married and lived in Poland, the other, my grandmother, married and lived in Britain. I live here in London.

In Islington I exhibited some works under the umbrella of “spherism’ – not cubism. Even finding a tag of ‘Pick-Axe-O’. Then working again with very young children I have found that Mark Making and painting in colour develops shared visual, tactile and oral skills even at 18 months. I have found inspiration in London with toddling Icelanders, Swedish Finns, Cantonese Chinese, multicultural and multilingual children. Yes of course Polish children too.

In recent months I have concentrated on an interesting project with a young child who said “I Want to Paint Flowers”. Some artists have influenced my approach having themselves produced iconic images (postcards above) that are appreciated in all cultures: Avercamp, Mondrian, van Gogh, Calder,

Gallen-Kallela, van Doesburg, Uccello, Monet, Riley, Pollock, Delaunay, Gauguin, Albers, Matisse, Bosschaert, Hirst, Long, and last but not least Malewicz.

This exhibition is to commemorate one hundred years of European family history and almost fifty years since the May ’68 occupation of Hornsey College of Art, Crouch End Hill. You are welcome to share in this at POSK from 26 August to 8 September 2017.

You can find me on Facebook: designhansa with albums related to the design process for each work.
