Artist Crush: Alan Shipway

Sunday, January 13, 2013 · 3 Comments

It’s hard not to be captivated by the optimism and creative expression in the work of Edinburgh artist Alan Shipway.

“To me the whole point, the beginning and end of painting, is that in itself it can be a kind of sanctuary – that it can radiate untroubledness, and point to something beyond the realities or mundane aspects of everyday life…” – Alan Shipway

“I think my ideal in painting is for it to radiate feelings of clarity… To me there is a value in clarity as such – there is a value in the capacity of paintings to radiate untroubledness and gravity of significance – an ideal that paintings should in a way dignify the space they inhabit.” – Alan Shipway

    Holly,I found your blog by searching for a reipce. My family and I are currently making the transition to a plant based diet. We watched Forks Over Knives a few weeks ago. I was excited to see you are in AZ and you are believer. We also live in AZ and loves Jesus!! It has been an easy transition for my husband and two younger children, but my older children (teenagers) are having a harder time. Do you have any lunch or snack suggestions? Or even great reipces that your family loves. I am excited to follow your blog and look at all your reipces.Valerie Bassett

    (2012 Model) (Electronics) I looked for awhile for a camera that provided me with a great zoom. This camera didn’t zoom as much as my old one, but because of the high MP, it actually takes better pictures and when I crop pictures it’s a much clearer picture. I love it and the color !
