  • Sugaring Off
 by Grandma Moses 
Date: 1943
Style: Naïve Art (Primitivism)
Series: Sugaring Off
Genre: genre painting "Sugaring Off" was one of Grandma Moses' most popular themes. Like many of her earliest subjects, it derived from popular illustration—in this case, a well-known Currier & Ives lithograph. Although Moses did at the very start of her career sometimes copy compositions verbatim, she never tried to duplicate this Currier & Ives print. Rather, from the start she freely combined elements from her primary source with vignettes from other sources and from her own imagination. Certain stock images do tend to recur in the "Sugaring Off" paintings, however, among them the burning cauldron, the mother pouring maple sugar on the snow (where it would harden into instant candy), the men with buckets, and the little "sugar house." Sugaring Off dates from 1943, at the height of Grandma Moses' first truly mature style. She had by this point in her career gained formidable mastery of her medium. She was capable of rendering details with pristine clarity and of handling extremely complex compositions. Sugaring Off is notable for its vast assortment of disparate activities, arrayed in a preternaturally broad landscape. This opening up of the landscape into an almost square, quiltlike panoply of detail is one of the hallmarks of the "Grandma Moses style." As she matured further, however, Moses would revert to narrower horizontals, which required greater compression of detail.

  • Sometimes i set out with an idea i want to try out, sometimes i just start by putting pencil to paper and seeing where it goes. This is one of those. I launch from my source material, but no preconceptions, no agenda, no real thinking - just playing. (Image shown is cropped)

All my recent drawings will be exhibited in a solo presentation, ‘Precarious Structures’ with @arushagallery @drawartfairlondon to be held @saatchi_gallery London 15th -19th May (open to the public from 17th)
