Recently hung one of Amy Crehore’s beautiful oil paintings Vulnerable Seascape up on my wall. I’ve always loved the evocative nature of Crehore’s work, whether it is on canvas or her trademark Ukuleles. There is a sense of languid playfulness and occasional erotic undertones running through her perfectly executed pieces. Time seems to stand still for her sensual, long limbed girls, curious cats and mischievous monkeys.
