You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine

Been working on my portfolio lately. I should ace this. It's the passion you want to strive for and the dream you'd do anything to get :)

I went to the Saatchi Gallery last week. It was literally the best art gallery I've ever been too. The art is very contemporary (very me) and the artworks were very well spaced. From outside it looked like a small house, but inside there were 15 rooms to showcase the artworks that include sculptures, installations, paintings, and even a pool of oil (yes, you read it right). It's cool. The artists who committed to make such unbelievable pieces must be very, very gifted. Anyone who go to London should visit this gallery, especially if you're more interested in modern art than the old, boring paintings....... *okay, not gonna judge* *oops, just did* *sorry*

The building architecture was mixed between minimalism and artsy. You can see all the glass and brick at the same time. It was pretty cool. And they have loads of partition, which I like. 

When I first came into this room, the smell was striking definitely, but I had no idea it was oil. I thought it was a black glass or cloth that covered half height of the room because you see the reflection right? I thought it was the ground, or the floor. And then it struck me. It was like, how did he do this? (Well, he probably just poured down !@#$%^&*() liter of oil...)

I'm really sorry for not taking notes of all the artists. At that time I was too caught up with the artworks that I forgot to take pictures of the artists' badges, or name and title stuff that galleries usually put on the wall. Naughty, naughty me. You should never ever do that because recognition of the artists is very important.

Sorry for the long post but... I hope you enjoy it. And for those who live in Indonesia, don't you just wish that our country have this kind of galleries? ;;)


P.S. My outfit post for this one was "inspired" by my other outfit post but this time I paired the scalloped skirt with M&S black long sleeve t-shirt, Zara blazer, over the knee socks I found in my closet, New Look flats, Issey Miyake Bao Bao bag, and necklace I got from Shanghai. Toodles.
