The artist’s eye

#178: Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does  it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)

I’ve never been one for visiting art galleries – whenever I think about going into London, I automatically think of West End theatres and visiting museums, such as the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum (THE fun days-out places from my childhood!). I think an interest in Art, is mostly determined by your surroundings when growing up – if members of your family have a passion for it, if you attend a school that specialises in Art (mine was sports… not that I turned out particularly sporty) and the area you live in. When I think of my family, I think theme parks, pub lunches and package holidays – so art culture wise, it’s just not us.

That said, the types of art I do like (as I don’t have one in particular) are things such as The Big Bang Theory pop art, Egyptian art on papyrus paper, or something more simple like beautiful gerberas or butterflies!
