Thinking Outside the Box - Yoshi Talks Fine Art

Thinking Outside the Box - Yoshi Talks Fine Art Image

Hello to all my fans! Yoshi dog-in-residence at The Copper House Gallery here casting a canine eye on the fine world of fine art.

Today we have that nice artist Basil Blackshaw. He had a big show of his work in the lovely shiny RHA for all his best friends and now he has a pedigree show at the Gordon Gallery in Derry.  

That nice artist Basil Blackshaw likes painting horsies and his best friends and he is Best in Show for the representation of canines in the arts.

His lovely painting Big Brown Dog is nicer than a squeaky toy.  Big Brown Dog is happy and scruffy and he loves his best friends. I love my best friends and playing with my squeaky teddy.

Hello to all my friends! Yoshi dog-in-residence at The Copper House Gallery with paws for thought  about the representations of canines in the arts. That nice Scottish photographer Paul Walker won a big prize for Photographer of the Year 2012 like winning Best in Show at Crufts.

That nice photographer Paul Walker captured a lovely moment (pictured above) when the hunting dog may have spotted a squirrel.  Squirrel!!! Or the hunting dog is playing fetch and is looking for his stick. I like playing fetch with my best friends.

Thinking on the Box – Yoshi and Rich Gilligan on RTÉ The Works

Thinking on the Box – Yoshi and Rich Gilligan on RTÉ The Works Image

Hello to all my fans! Yoshi dog-in-residence reporting from The Copper House Gallery. My good friend Rich Gilligan and I were on television, on RTÉ's The Works on Thursday 15th November 2012. This lovely and sparkling show promotes the arts in Ireland.

Before filming, here at The Copper House Gallery, I discussed method acting with The Works director, my good friend Michael McCormack. Michael liked the Lassie approach, adding the influence of the brilliant Uggie (2011 Palm Dog Award Winner), from The Artist.

Rich spoke about his book DIY, his exhibition at The Copper House Gallery and skateboarding. Then we had biscuits and treats.

Use your paws to scroll to 13.29 on the timebar on RTÉ player to see the interview with Rich, my cameo is at 15.02.

Thinking Outside the Box - Yoshi Talks Architecture

Hello again my good friends, Yoshi dog-in-residence at The Copper House Gallery on the beat with some paws for thought. Mark Wilson and all those nice people at fastcompany.com understand the importance of promoting the canine point-of-view in the world of design and architecture.

They posted a fantastic article about Kenya Hara, art director at Muji, who has a pedigree project called  Architecture for Dogs, for both dogs and their best friends.  Projects on the site take into account all creatures great and small, the Dachshund pictured above can talk to his best friend in comfort and style. 

A thoroughly thoroughbred idea!

Thinking Outside the Box - Yoshi Talks Art Image

Hello, my name is Yoshi and I am currently dog-in-residence at The Copper House Gallery. Promoting the representation of canines in the arts is a matter I discuss regularly with my best friends here at Fire.

I was particularly impressed with Enda Cavanagh's image called Man and Dog at the Forty Foot, part of his current exhibition Duality here at The Copper House Gallery.  I consider the image as best-in-show!
