There's Art in Them There Islands!


Huge painting by Brigitte D'Anniabale, Kaua'i artist
That's a piece of copper across the top!


We are home! It was a great trip and I took lots of pictures. Hawaii is as beautiful as I remember, IF YOU KNOW WHERE to GO!
H-I and H-2 (Hawaii's interstate highways??!!HA!) are NOT the place to go.
It wasn't in 1993 and it certainly isn't now. So, we hit our old haunts and tried our best to stay off the very busy Oahu highways.

This post is about Hawaiian art!
After all, this is an ART BLOG. ; )
If you want to see our other pics (Joe in the old C-130 he once flew and pictures of Waikiki beach surfers and the site of our house that is now washed into the sea) go to my Facebook page (over there in the right column) and peruse the "Return to Hawaii" photo album.

Now, on to the art!
I fell in love with Hawaii artist Brigitte D'Anniabale.
Find her here at http://abc.eznettools.net/taboragallery/Brigitte.html
Here's another example of her work...
One dimension just doesn't do her work justice. She nails and glues stuff all over!


I found Brigitte's art one cool evening while walking with JOe, doing a little window shopping in Honolulu. I spotted this huge painting in a gallery window!


I was smitten!
Joe knew it was all over once I grabbed his arm and pulled him inside.
From the first gallery, I found my way to two more galleries in Waikiki (I was kind enough to leave Joe snorkeling during these expeditions) where Brigitte has work displayed.
Brigette works with salvaged architectural pieces from old sugar plantation buildings...tin, copper, vintage moldings, fabric, pieces of wood with chipping paint. It gives her work texture and depth, but also a REAL tactile bit of Hawaiian history.
I was so sad to see SUGAR disappearing in Hawaii. In the 90's, we lived a few miles from vast sugar cane fields and the sugar mill in old Waipahu. Not there now. But that's another story.

Next post! Two more Hawaii artists!
See you then,
Ronnie (who is very glad to be home in her nest again.)

*And a little plug for a friend...For a really good time visit PJ at PJHornberger.com

Oh, my gosh. She really captures the feel of the islands, doesn't she? The little bits and pieces of it brought together to make art. Smart lady.
Thanks for the very nice plug, my friend! xo PJ

Beautiful artwork ! I'm so jealous of your island adventures but I'm glad you guys had a great time!!

Anne said...

Hi, Ronnie! Welcome back! Aloha! Glad you had fun! :-)

Suze said...

That's sooo cool.

Attic Rat said...

What a lovely place to create art!! I can see why you enjoy her pieces.

Aloha,
Teresa

Ooh, I love her work! It's gorgeous.
Now I want a drink with a little umbrella in it!

But were the waves good????

I'm siding (again) with Joe. It's a very painful thing to have your arm grabbed by someone (wife) hellbent on spending money. The inventor of Rolaids knew this & made a fortune.

Those are really quite lovely and I love the use of salvaged materials.
Hope to visit Hawaii one day!
