Trending This Week
Ok so for most of the week it's seemed like summer got lost on its way here to London. But we're still holding out on it turning up before too long. Amidst thunder storms and grey skies we've been practising the art of escapism in the office, browsing through artworks inspired by sunnier times. Hang a piece like St Tropez Beach in your house and hey presto - it's summer all year round...! (Disclaimer: side effects may include wanderlust).
Rebecca Gordon in The London Mummy
“Rise Art was a complete change for me... I was suddenly surrounded by really affordable, yet brilliant artworks. As a result, my relationship with art changed and I became excited again because for once, I could actually afford to own some of the work that I was selling! It was new, exciting and rewarding dealing with these emerging artists as well as the more established ones.”
Savvy and stylish mother of 3 and lifestyle blogger Lucinda Robins recently pinned down our very own head curator Rebecca Gordon for an interview feature in The London Mummy. Check it out to hear all about what Rebecca gets up to here at Rise Art, and to see some of her top picks of affordable art, including original pieces from Harriet Hoult, Simon Smith, Samsofy Samlal to name but a few!
