ORGAN THING OF THE DAY: Diane Goldie’s window…

ORGAN THING OF THE DAY:  Went to have a look at Diane Goldie‘s window today, at Viktor Wynd’s Last Tuesday Society, his rather delightfully strange museum on Mare Street, just by the canal, edges of Hackney.  I wasn’t the only one curious, big crowd outside, very colourful crowd (very very colourful), artists, film directors, perfprmers… The window is there to be enjoyed for the next couple of months…

Launching on Sunday 28th,  The Viktor Wynd Museum is delighted to announce that Diane Goldie will be creating a special window display for the months of June & July  – Diane Goldie is an artist, obsessive maker, feminist, puppeteer and poet.  Born in Nottinghamshire in the early 60s, before emigrating to South Africa in 1975, where she received her art training and love of vibrant colours and tribal aesthetic, Diane has turned her hand to most crafts and arts over her 50 years on the planet, delighting in the quirky and oddball :crocheting strange anthropomorphic creatures and performance artists as well as sewing fetuses and weird armless busts from cotton jersey. Diane spent her early years as a scenic artist, copying Old Masters as part of her daily job before returning to the UK and then spent the next 25 years delighting London’s children as a puppeteer. Then Diane met the inspirational Sue Kreitzman and her world changed.  Now wearable art, sculpture and painting has taken front stage and Diane has closed those red velvet puppet show curtains for the last time . Through the medium of painting, embroidering and appliqueing onto vibrant African prints, Diane aims to take art from the gallery walls and bring it to the street in the form of wearable art and personal creative expression of style.

 

More tomorrow… maybe
