Forty years, or more, ago a European folk singing duo named Nina and Frederick complained of the regimentation of Homo Suburbanii in a song called “Little Boxes”.
Since then there have been so many similar complaints the whole situation has become a cliche.
So there was no surprise when I saw this;
With its vaguely Hebraic or Arabic scriptal overtones, this “arch” is “an abstracted figurative [is this a redundancy?] work with positive and negative space and symbolic forms.”
I think it was the creator who was abstracted. I keep attempting to find the humanity in this. I can’t even find the humour! Not even in the $49,000 price tag.
Finally for today is this rather strange invention; the “pot wagon”.
How you can be true to the material when that material is copper, resin with fibreglass and stainless steel is a question I would prefer to remain unanswered.
At $35,000 surely it deserves a better collection of words than, “I would like to carry the beautiful sky to your mind.”
THAT sort of “pot”!
Tomorrow I post some works I found interesting.
I always like to end on a positive note.
