Martin Wehmer is a German artist based in Hong Kong whose paintings are composed of thick brushstrokes. it almost makes me want to take out a brush and swab thick lobs of paint on my face. that’s not weird, right?
please enjoy my highly important research findings of Food in Art. one thing i realised while putting this together is that many artists are completely OBSESSED with donuts. maybe the oozing of the paint reminds them of the oozing of the inside of jam filled donut, but there it is. all images courtesy of Artsy.
i’ve spoken about the fact that i love white walls & have never ventured into colour territory when it comes to the walls in my home. right now i’m living with a carefully pale green in the flat i’m renting, which i loathe. more and more i’ve come to realise that i deliberately make my bedroom as dark as i can – with the help of a handy block out blind (thanks landlord) and curtains that are usually always drawn. since i spend most of my time in the bedroom in the evenings, i like it to be dark, warm and cosy – not light and bright enough that i can tweeze my eyebrows or perform surgery (as you do).
i grew up in a white walls household – it just went with my parent’s ‘modernist’ house and that was that. i still get nervous about putting colour on the walls, though i have toyed with the idea of light grey (hah). my rented flat has a sort of beigey crap colour in all the rooms (even the bathroom!) that i’m not allowed to paint over & it drives me kind of nutso.
