Here’s a focus on three of the readers’ favourite discoveries, presented last May on Fisheye’s website.
Fascinated by Edward Hopper’s work, Richard Tuschman began to create Hopper Meditations in 2011, a work inspired by the paintings of the artist. “I discovered his artworks at the Whitney Museum of New York, in 1979. At the time, I had just moved to the Big Apple so I could easily relate to the mood of isolation in the pictures”, he admits. His series, a true tribute to the painter, recreates the delicate atmosphere, both elegant and melancholic, characteristic of Hopper’s artworks.
