Faig Ahmed! I had no idea one of his pieces was there, can’t wait to check it out.

I had no idea either until I walked into the gallery and was totally gobsmacked. Never ever expected to see one of his designs in person, esp in NH.


Hutwe t1_ix15apl wrote

I was thinking the same thing. Going to have to check this out

The museum is free for NH residents the second Saturday of the month and free after 4?(I think ) on Thursdays

I saw this piece in person months back and I was in awe

Whats it made out of?

Same as a regular Persian rug, it’s knotted wool yarn. The textiles are made by craftsmen and -women in the artist’s native Azerbaijan.

These "Just Stop Oil" protesters are going too far, first they threw soup at Van Gogh's Flowers painting, and now they melted a carpet off of a wall. /s

Currier museum is an interesting place. I went a couple years ago but it'd be cool to go back

I love the Masters they have on display, I could stare at them for hours. The details are amazing and the brush works are stunning

Wow! That’s… wow, that’s cool. I’m sure I could tell you why if I had an art degree but I’m sticking with cool.

Me: paraphrasing what I said to my friends when I saw this

ETA: I zoomed in. Please zoom in if you’re reading this.

I have a picture of this on my phone right now. Awesome museum I didn’t even know was there.

Was the arghavan exhibit still there? So beautiful

Available at your local Omega Mart ;)

Impressive work!

It's clever, it's novel but it's not art. This junk was popular about ten or twenty years ago, it was meh then. If you're really interested in this technique you can find it on YouTube. Anyone can do this. It's called acrylic pour painting.

Nothing is paint here… it is all knotted


New-Vegetable-1274 t1_ix66mpq wrote

Ok, still not art, crafts maybe, not art.

It's gimmicky, but I wouldn't exactly engage in gatekeeping about it. Artists have to eat, and this crap sells.

But I thought Manchester was only good for fentanyl and getting stabbed?
