“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”— Muhammad Ali

🙏✨Marking the one year anniversary

Exactly one year ago the art world gathered, as is tradition every two years since 1895, in Venice to celebrate the Biennale Arte, arguably the most important art event in the world. One of the most significant contributions to the 2019 Biennale was Lorenzo Quinn’s monumental sculpture Building Bridges. "Each pair of the sculpture’s hands celebrate one of six universal human values: Friendship, to build on the future together; Wisdom, to make mutually beneficial decisions; Help, to cement lasting relationships; Faith, to trust in your heart and self-worth; Hope, to persevere in worthwhile endeavours; and Love, the fundamental purpose for it all" - Lorenzo Quinn

‘I believe that the key to the future is in the remnants of the past. That you have to master the idioms of your own time before you can have any identity in the present tense.’ Bob Dylan, Vanity Fair, 2016

Happy Birthday to Bob Dylan💙One of the most influential cultural figures of our time.

To celebrate his birthday over the next few days, we’ll be sharing a selection of Bob Dylan’s American landscape artworks. Stay tuned.

These paintings are up to the moment realism—archaic, most static, but quivering in appearance. They contradict the modern world.’ Bob Dylan, Vanity Fair, 2016

‘Once I’ve done one screen, then the screen itself becomes an implement to put paint on a surface in the traditional making that goes back ten thousand years.’ - Russell Young

When he makes his backgrounds, Young explains, ‘some are really flat because I want that flatness against the image, and then others, you see the hand streaks ... you see on the places where there’s no diamond dust, the hand brushstroke.’ Some canvases are printed eight or nine times over a month, each layer enhancing the tactile quality of his work.

Young also experiments with diamond dust in many of his works, drawn to the texture and luminous finish. He initially used an original bag of Andy Warhol’s diamond dust, but later started making his own, bringing a meditative quality to his screen prints.

The material captures the light and forms an aura around the subject: a physical manifestation of the fragile yet enduring nature of fame. 🌟To learn more about screen-printing disover the ‘Process’ at fame.halcyongallery.com

📸 A snapshot of Ojai Moon Valley, California, from Russell Young’s inspiration journal.

Brightly coloured hues & breathtaking Californian skies inspire Young to collect colour pigments from all over the world & create unique paints that he mixes in small batches. ‘I knew I loved these colours and I mixed the paints myself from pigments that I’ve gathered from all over the world. It was the colour rather than the subject matter that appealed to me first of all.’ - Russell Young, discussing his inspiration behind FAME.

✨🪐 ‘The human species has taken thousands of years to ponder two questions: who are we? And where do we come from? When we are looking at ourselves in a mirror, we are trying to find answers to the first of these questions. When we look up at the sky, we are reflection on the second.’ - Pedro Paricio

Pictured is an installation of ‘Galaxies’ by Pedro Paricio from our Dreams exhibition, 2016.

‘Beauty’ by Pedro Paricio🌷

The work, as the title suggests, is of beauty - an allegory of the strength in human spirit as much as the love we share for the ones we cherish.
