We’d like to think the walls of our home keep us safe.

They provide necessary protection against the elements,…

strangers, and complex predators…,

but did we ever dream..

that they could be a source of artistic inspiration?

Probably not….

 

In this latest installment of object adventures,..

I’ve added a new addition to the “Spectrum” series,..

“Blue Light Fold”.

Sections of architecture were carefully shot and fused together to create the illusion of a radiating flower like pattern whose vibrant, glowing quality is reminiscent of Color Field Abstract Art and light sculptures from the 70s Light/Space Movement.

When I created this series, I didn’t realize how many striking variations I could create, but as I’ve often pointed out…

the possibilities are endless..

What does this object remind you of?

Have a wonderful and blessed Weekend!

Always remember…

to live life creatively.

Ordinary Objects That Look Like 60s Op Art 2

Come with me on another object adventure…

This week we are once more artistically analyzing the profundity of a much hated household chore…

laundry!

Even the smallest of changes to a found texture can make a great difference in the way it’s perceived.

In the latest installment to my Op Art laundry inspired series “Laundratopia”, it was the compositional extreme pull in the middle that gives it its’ penetrating feel.

Like the visual pull, we often feel that somebody or something is moving us strongly in a direction that we may or may not want to go.

When we try to ignore the situation..

the more intense it becomes.

At this point..

we are aware of one thing.

That the situation must be dealt with.

The constant pursuit of wisdom and peace in our lives often causes us to overlook

ourselves and our own needs.

However, if we insist on putting our own emotional, psychological and physical needs on the back-burner, we suffer from burnout and a lingering malaise that eventually leads to melancholy and finally bitterness.

Make time for others, but do so with limits, not for the lack of love, but because you have to love yourself before you can love others.

Have a peaceful, loving and artful weekend.

Always remember to live life creatively!

Nobody likes to do the laundry. Well, maybe some folks do, but not the ones I know. It’s a detestably boring activity whose necessity becomes apparent with each smelly pile of daily contributions. Laundry is just that, until upon closer inspection, you become obscessed with the patterns before you. Then, another world emerges from the constant grind of daily chores. At that moment, art is life and life is art. Each set of patterns leads to a host of playful compositions. They introduce themselves like eager guests at the best cocktail party.

When this artwork emerged from a host of others, it reminded me of two modern dancers crouching and twisting their bodies in preparation for a sudden leap. They blended neatly with the patterns on the floor which grounded them. Yet, they were trying to find their own identity apart from their surroundings.

We’re all trying to discover our unique character and purpose. The world is a confusing place. Sometimes, we feel like a number, ordinary, dull, maybe even unlovable. Like avoiding the laundry, we artfully dodge pain producing or unpleasant tasks, choosing instead to to travel the pleasant, familiar road, but there’s no real growth there. In order to learn, reach our goals, even surpass our greatest dreams we must continue to embrace the struggle.
