Fig Tree Art Gallery is a blog where I showcase amazing food or home related art from around the web.
I’ve always loved art – although I’ve never been good enough to consider myself an artist (writing about art is the next best thing). The first painting I ever did was of a fig tree, hence the name of the blog. It’s always been a special memory for me, as it’s the start of what has been a lifelong interest in art.
I enjoy all types, but I particularly like food art or pieces that reflect a combination of the home with our wider surroundings. I’ve always been fascinated by how we’ve chosen to live – in homes, walled off from each other – and how this would have been entirely alien to our ancestors. Art is one of the best ways to express this contradiction.
If you have any feedback, you can always contact me using the contact page. I read every message from this blog, although I can’t promise to respond quickly.
