Minimalism (8)

The ‘meaning’ of an art work can be significantly changed by the context in which it is presented. Location, scale, space, colour, light, background, texture etc., all impact on our interpretation of the subject itself. There is a sense in which they become an integral part of the art work. Any change to the negative space surrounding the subject affects its interpretation. (Many of the critics of Carl Ande’s Equivalent VIII, saw only a neat stack of bricks: they failed to see the interrelationship between the sculpture and its context, its environment.)

Follow that snowdrop!

 

This photo, taken a few weeks ago, was accidentally omitted from the ‘snowdrop post’ at that time, but somehow it seems to have particular relevance in the present climate. Even after the darkest days and most severe winter weather the seemingly fragile (but deceptively resilient) snowdrop returns to put a smile on our faces and bring promise of better things to come. What a wonderful example it provides!

Just think about it again (2)

‘Abstract paintings and drawings [and photographs] tap into a fundamental, primitive part of our existence  –  the part that experiences life without words, beyond language, transcending definition.’    Art is Fun

Impressions of the salt marshes (3)

he salt marshes of North Norfolk  provide an endless source of inspiration for the creative artist  An atmosphere of quiet stillness is broken on by the occasional birdsong or, from time to time, a passing plane.  The moods and colours can change dramatically, and quickly, depending on changing weather conditions.

This series comprises a collection of impressions evoked by the marshes.  The longer the viewer can spend with each image the stronger will the sense of place become.
