my images after the Tate Modern Exhibition
After having been to Tate Modern's Photography Show, l find myself looking for "lines" every where. I have always been interested in lines and circles but after the Exhibition things began to all click into place, in my mind!! So take a walk with me this morning to see how l have started to look at my surrounding differently. !
This first image made me realise, that although this mark was made by workman ... if l painted it on canvas it would be classed as "Art". Well in my world it would be anyway! :)
Which artist painted this image then? :) It is funny how one line drawn on the road can look like "Art" in my eyes now!
Nature makes it's own beauty and is often an amazing Artist it's self ! BUT ...add in humans contribute and sometimes ... interesting things happen!
I think glass is an amazing substance. As you can see from the next few images, l have tried to look at "normal" images of glass differently. I had a lot of fun looking at glass from different angles, from above, through and close up. Once l had started looking at glass , l found it amazing how glass could look so different!
I found it fascinating how this piece of glass suddenly became a maginifying glass. Yes l know l should know this but watching it happen suddenly made it seem like magic!
I have always found "broken" glass fascinating ...way ... l have no idea! Ha!
Metal from different angles.
A piece of bread thrown away, lying on the pavement. Yes but still interesting!
There is a lot of rubbish these days and yes ... it is very annoying but if you can get past that problem ... it is very interesting when you can look at it differently! This next image is a crushed plastic cup, run over by a car.
Another discarded piece of plastic ... but very artistic!
Not sure what this was before but here, it reminds me of a painting l saw a few years ago. Wish l could remember who the artist was! It was a huge acrylic painting and was meant to be something to do with magic and angels!
This is a piece of tissue that has been squashed into the path . I wonder how long it has been here? It has now become part of the pathway and l expect very few people notice it.
This is a piece of shiny sweet paper , that has also been squashed into the stone path. When it catches the light it sparkles. I heard one little girl saying " Oh look Nanna, sparkling stones, is it magic" ? :)
Cigarettes have somehow figured quite a lot in this walk! Why can't people put them in a bin but then l wouldn't have these images would l! :) I did not stage it.
Can you see the curved lines, these discarded cigarettes have created?
Love this image. It feels it looks like a painting already!
Then as l was finishing my walk, l saw this amazing sight. I love bees. I never realised till lately how many different sorts of bees and wasps there are !
Hope you enjoyed this walk and in the future try looking at "things" differently. Life can be SO exciting if you decide to look at the world diffently! Night all.xx
A couple of years ago, when my depression was quite bad, l took up drawing again. I bought some double sided, concertina, hardback books. ...
Have you ever had that feeling that something is about to happen but you don't know what? I have had exciting buzzing in my stomach an...
