Laura McBeth, Marketing Director at Washington Green and sometime scribe brings you her collection of artworks that inspire the imagination, The Weird & the Wonderful. Of her inspiration, Laura says,"I love artwork that blends the normal with the abnormal, or that mixes the whimsical nature of fantasy with a sense of dark foreboding. Pieces that intrigue, excite and disturb all at once. I guess you’d say that my tastes, and therefore, the work displayed in this particular collection are a little surrealist, perhaps in some cases macabre? Although boxing off an artist/piece of art into a genre or movement seems too constrained to me. Ultimately, this is just art I like, view the entire collection here and see what you think!"
Archival fine art print - Limited Edition of 75
Laura: The colours and the detail in this piece by Kristjana make it a magnificent treat! The way in which flora and fauna merge and entwine to become one throughout the artwork is beautiful. I could see this type of work on ceramics too.
Limted Edition of 10 Photographic Giclée Prints
Laura: I’m a list nut, so immediately this jumped out at me. I especially like the torn & defaced £10 note…questioning the necessity of material goods when you are without the ability to create.
Original Oil Painting on Canvas
Laura: This is a very bold piece, it sort of smacks you right between the eyes. The physical size of the art is imposing & would make a fantastic statement. The lack of definition around the lips & mouth unsettle me a little, like he is unable to make himself heard.
