I think the easiest decision I’ve ever made is in answer to the question of whether I’d like a glass of champagne with my afternoon tea at the Langham Hotel, central London. Oh god, that is not a hard decision to make. I have a collection of great memories, what about that secret room in the bistro in Paris? Oh bliss. And that Bouillabaisse served by waiters who cared enough to even place my handbag on a low stool. When I look back life seemed to be a combination of simple joys with droolworthy salubrious details. I recall walking extremely slowly in the Bois de Boulogne in the 16th arrondissement hoping to see Lenny Kravitz on an early morning run. Lingering longer in Studio 7L, Karl Lagerfield’s bookstore, which specialises in photography, fashion, design and architecture. The scent of french onion soup and hot chocolate in winter in Paris, somehow softening the grey skies, always warms me. Yet, life has become a little more complicated of late, for all of us and I find myself calling on these memories to elevate my sense of self. And as artists, our intricate memories are needed now more than ever to create, levitate our art and calm our souls. Like Picasso, our exceptional visual memories ensure a collective sigh of relief.
I want to personally thank all of the featured talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week. Together, we exchange our vision, our fears, our hopes and our dreams, we become one.
