Artwork of the week is this rendition of Rousseau’s ‘Junier’s Cart’ by Aspire artist Tommy Mason. ‘Man and Horse with a Wee Dog’ is currently on exhibition in the foyer of Trongate 103, along with six other abstract paintings by Tommy. These paintings are bold, bright and beautiful. This piece is a rendition of a rather famous painting by Henri Rousseau, pictured here:
It is clear that the subjects have been borrowed from Rousseau’s painting, but the style, charm and colour palette are all Mason’s. Read more about Tommy and his work at his exhibition page here. The exhibtiion will be up until 29 April. In addition to the paintings on display we have many amazing works of art by Tommy in our archive room. If you love these but don’t have enough wall space, you are welcome to look through some of his smaller paintings, prints and drawings. ‘Beasts and Funny Men‘ is just one example.
