‘The Bride of Death’ by Thomas Jones Barker .
This is the last of my chosen 7 and kind of my wild card. All my choices have been artists whose work I have come across over the years and have given a strong sense of inspiration that have enabled me to develop my own career. Of course these are only a few, there are many more, but there are also other artists, genres or movements that have inspired me since I started looking at art from a very early age. I have always been drawn to figurative work and when I moved to Bath nearly 20 years ago now, I found this painting in the Victoria Art Gallery. It’s part of their permanent collection and I go to the gallery many times each year just to sit and stare at it. Quite honestly it's just stunning, the symbolism and back story aside, it's a piece that just sparks a real emotional response for me. If you ever come to Bath, make sure you take some time to take it in .
This was the last piece chosen by @tombagshaw. I really enjoyed the whole day, and as a fan of Tom's work it was incredible to see the art and artists who have inspired his pieces. Thank you so much Tom! Stay tuned for the full TAKE OVER on beautifulbizarre.net next week .
Our September Take Over artist is @juliadeville, fantastic!
