DAILY ART FIX: Unseen Artist Eric Tucker

Art world links which caught my eye…

So much talent out there which does not participate in the corrupted, virtue signaling, Postmodern absurdity of establishment art.

Key quote from the article:

Tucker was a boxer and construction worker in Warrington. And though few knew it, he was also a prolific, self-taught artist whose paintings depicted a lost, industrial era. Before he died in 2018 at the age of 86, family members discovered a trove of about 400 canvases, the best of which are now on display here.

Tucker spent his days in the front parlor of his home, painting the working-class world he knew: Boisterous pubs where people played piano and sang. Neighborhoods of terraced houses — the English equivalent of row homes — where men played cricket in empty lots against a skyline of belching smokestacks. It was a communal way of life that disappeared with Warrington’s factories.

  2. I liked your point about so many talented artists in the world who don’t participate in the virtue signaling of the postmodern art culture. To that I cheer: yes!
