ART FIX | Art entertainment for isolation
“A picture is a poem without words.”
We can always rely on art to provide a consistent stream of inspiration and entertainment. We hope you enjoy this week’s edition of Art Fix.
Fake or Fortune with Fiona Bruce & Philip Mould
From the BBC, our hosts Fiona Bruce and art dealer Philip Mould forensically investigate the provenances of individual artworks; with good old fashioned research and cutting edge scientific analysis they discern whether a painting is a fake or perhaps a masterpiece worth a fortune. This is such a clever show and with eight seasons there is plenty to keep everyone entertained.

Anthropometries by Yves Klein
Brought to you by the Tate, one is invited to revisit Yves Klein’s Anthropometries, a truly pivotal piece that had a rippling effect on performance art as a whole. Here the act of creation became an art-form in itself.These performances were so iconic that the deep and powerful blue pigment that characterised the artist’s 60’s ‘blue period’ later became patented as ‘International Klein Blue’.

Plate up like Jackson Pollock!
Brighten up any plate with a touch of Jackson Pollock inspired decoration.
Bringing colour and joy to your culinary creations, you are limited only by your imagination. While we love a crisp white backdrop to really make this pop like a Pollock painting, these splendid splatter techniques pair well with almost everything.
