Your favourite monthly
discoveries of May
Here’s a focus on three of the readers’ favourite discoveries, presented last May on Fisheye’s website.
1. Richard Tuschman
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.
