Art Shopping Fair - October 2011

Four batiks made for the Art Shopping Fair at the Carousel du Louvre in Paris.
I decided to change size (140 x 45cm; and 40 x 85cm) and format, and also to stretch them like painting canvases.

It was an interesting but tiring experience.  Hundreds of artists participating, so I walked quite a bit and got to see what other contemporary artists are doing.  An immense variety.. I guess there was art to cater to every taste there.
A LOT of colour, a surprising amount of art using collage... may be the current trend.
