Gallery Series I/13

I would like you, the viewer, to visualise each image as a softly lit large scale canvas (say, 8 feet x 8 feet) on a white gallery wall and imagine quietly contemplating the abstract pattern. Attention should focus on a feeling response rather than a rational analysis.  The use of the magnifier to enlarge the image may be helpful.

Van Gogh’s chair revisited

 

It is more than twenty years since this photograph was taken of an old chair, abandoned in the corner of an otherwise empty attic.  The original was in black and white.

I have returned to the photo on numerous occasions during the intervening years and it has had several re-incarnations  –  frequently ‘influenced’ (as in this instance) by Van Gogh’s famous painting.

What colour is a bluebell?

At this season of the year woodlands are often gloriously carpeted with extensive areas of blue.  It is bluebell time.  Surely the individual flowers that combine to create such magnificent spectacles must be blue?  But closer examination reveals that this is not always so.  Although the overall effect may be blue beyond doubt, individual flowers can comprise a variety of colours and shades  –  as in the example pictured below.
