Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
The wonderful thing about following artists on social media, is when you get exposed to new-to-you artists. I follow (and have purchased from) Dessie Jackson, who will be participating in the upcoming group exhibition entitled 'One Year Of Resistance' at Untitled Space Gallery. On January 16th, the 80 person exhibition opens with an emphasis on the artists responses to the current political climate, since Donald Trump took office.
One of the artists whose work is featured on the promotional materials, is Alison Jackson. Alison's work is complex and varied, but what really got me was her series of Donald Trump photographs, in which she uses lookalikes. Her book is available for 14.99 GBP (PURCHASE HERE). While on her site, take a look at her other stuff - it's worth the visit!
Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
