Fernando Sucre
Pop Artist




From early aerospace and vintage aircraft, to World War II bombers, to modern fighters, commercial carriers, and Lear jets, it’s obvious that Sucre loves airplanes. But these aren’t just any old airplanes… these aircraft are flying through the crazy POP world of “Sucrevision”; hot pink Concordes, purple 747’s and lemon yellow Cessna’s. This is obviously an artist in his element. It’s fun, it’s POP, it’s Fernando Sucre and its worth a look!

Tate Britain
Exhibition
Paul Nash
Until 5 March 2017

Uncover the surreal and mystical side of English landscapes through one of the most distinctive British painters

Paul Nash was fascinated with Britain’s ancient past and spent time in southern England exploring the Downs and coastal areas. Equally inspired by the equinox and the phases of the moon, he used all these influences in his work, interpreting his environment according to a unique, personal mythology, evolving throughout his career.

Featuring a lifetime’s work from his earliest drawings through to his iconic Second World War paintings, this exhibition reveals Nash’s importance to British modern art in the most significant show of his work for a generation.

Totes Meer (Dead Sea), 1940-41



The exhibition will then take place at The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich (7 April—20 Aug 2017) followed by Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle (9 September 2017—end of January 2018).

Dave McKean talks Black Dog: The Dreams of Paul Nash


BLACK DOG The Dreams of Paul Nash by Dave McKean, 2016



‘I’d like to explore Paul Nash’s role in the birth of modernism and surrealism, and how those movements were actually witnessed by Nash in the dream-/nightmare-like battlefields of the war. He used the landscape that he loved to try to deal with what he’d been through, and to try and find calm and solace beyond.’ Dave McKean

Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894 – 1986)
was a French photographer and painter, known for his photographs of automobile races, planes and Parisian fashion female models.

Gabriel Voisin’s flight in the Archdeacon, 1904

Gabriel Voisin was an aviation pioneer and the creator of Europe's first manned, engine-powered, heavier-than-air aircraft capable of a sustained (1 km), circular, controlled flight, which was made by Henry Farman on January 13, 1908 near Paris, France.

As much as I enjoy looking at art, I also enjoy seeing the artist at work.
To know what is on the artist mind and learn his ideas and tecniques.

Enjoy some aviation artists at work.

Eric Thake I

Eric Thake (1904-1982)
was an Australian artist.

Airstrip at night, 1945


Thake enlisted in the RAAF in 1943 and worked as a draughtsman until his appointment to the RAAF Historical Section as a war artist in 1944. During the next two years he traveled to central and northern Australia, Timor and Dutch New Guinea.

Thake concentrated on the debris of conflicts, particularly crashed aircraft and machinery. His dream-like and mysterious viewpoint, focuses on the design of equipment in ways which were not usually considered by other artists. Kamiri searchlight and Parachute Store, No 31 Squadron, Morotari are two examples of his almost surreal images.



Thake working on a portrait of Lieutenant-General Yamada, the captured commander of 48th Division on Timor.


Kamiri Searchlight, 1945


Kamiri searchlight was painted on Numfoor Island, off Western New Guinea (Irian Jaya)towards the end of the Second World War, while Thake was on service as a war artist. Often he would seek out the detritus of war – wrecked buildings and aircraft and the everyday tools of war, such as this searchlight belonging to the  American 16th Anti-aircraft battery at the Kamiri Airstrip. The inverted reflection of the searchlight’s support structure and of Thake drawing on the airstrip create an unfamiliar and curious view of the world.


Archaeopteryx, 1941


'Archaeopteryx' is a superb example of Thake’s meticulous and witty paintings, its directness derived from his experience as a graphic artist and medical illustrator. The inspiration for 'Archaeopteryx' was a book by Willy Ley in which Australia is described as a world’s-end warehouse of nature’s experiments: the lizard-like head and feathered body of the flying machine evokes the prehistoric creature of the title.
