Mysterious goings on

This is the next piece for the front garden gallery, it's not finished yet. I have collected lots of these I wondered what to do with them, then it came to me in a flash, I wonder if it would work, lets give it a try.

All will be revealed :o)

  2. Oh no! Not more "art" please. Seeing your "art" when we walked past made us cringe. Please respect the beauty of the area you live in.

  3. Hi Ilona, I think your art is beautiful, please carry on with it. I think it is great. Jane xx

  4. Go for it Ilona, please do not let other people tell you what you can or cannot put on your own property! I am curious though as to what the rings are made of.

  5. Yeah keep going Ilona!!! Your garden Art is Great, how could anyone cringe, its not like your painting your whole house yellow or something is it? Some people are really dull and sad. I actually think your Arts designed really well and in London you would pay a fortune for one-off pieces like this.

  7. Hello - I've been lurking for a while but felt I should join the debate!
    I'm afraid I agree with the two anonymous commenters. Nature can't be improved on, we have such gloriousness in nature it doesn't need any embellishment, least of all with garish colours or shiny whatever the other things are.
    You could at least have left your hedge high so others wouldn't be able to see them.
    Sorry to be negative with my first comment but I felt quite strongly about this. The colours and textures and wondrous things in nature are quite staggeringly beautiful on their own.

  8. I think it is great - maybe put it in the back yard if other people dont like it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. yes - the back yard please.
    It surprises me that someone who loves rambling and the beauty of the countryside would want to display something so garish.

  10. I second the above post, you post such lovely pictures of the countryside but then put those brightly coloured plastic pots and painted twigs in the front of your garden which really don't "go", they look like childrens toys which someone has abandoned.

  11. Why are these people anonymous I wonder...
    We all can have our opinions but in end it is up to the individual to do what she likes.
    Theres a pagan rhyme that says,
    An it harm none
    Do as you will.
    Keep up the wonderful art work Ilona you are not hurting anybody and I love it.

  13. isn't it interesting how all the negative posts but one are anonymous? Wonder if they are the same person?

    ReplyDelete
  14. No I can say they are not, I am the second poster and I genuinely think Ilona is great but the art gallery in the garden isn't. Look at her pictures on her walks and see what I see.

    Stifling dissent in comments is rather silly, and now and again when one reads a blog one has to say what one thinks.

    I'm happy to provide an email address but dont follow on google and just read from time to time.

    You don't have to follow the herd you know.

  15. I really don't know why anonymous and anonymous are getting het up about this, in fact I'm rather chuffed that my art has provoked such a reaction. It would have been terrible if everyone had ignored it.

    I don't follow the herd either, I am garish, and I like garish. I like fun, quirky, oddball, eccentric, whimsical, fancifull, offbeat, and the countryside. That is me, I have many facets.

    I shall put what I like in my front garden, and if people don't like it they can walk on by. At least I haven't got a load of weeds, old tyres, wrecked bikes, wheelie bins, and an old mattress out there, hummmm, that's a thought, if I give that old fridge a coat of paint...... :o)

  16. Hi, I've been reading here for a while but not commented before. I personally don't like the 'art' but you are entitled to make whatever you want. However by purposely lowering your hedge you are inflicting it on others who may also not share your views. I think that unless you intended to shock or offend your neighbours then you would have put it somewhere for your eyes only.
    You wouldn't like to see the weeds, old tyres, wrecked bikes etc. in your neighbours garden, why should they have to look at your painted sticks in pots etc.

  17. I agree with you, Ilona; I believe the purpose of modern art is to provoke a reaction - to make people think, debate. If there was a definitive answer to the question `what is art`, I don`t think it would exist.

  18. totally agree, make what you like and put what you like in YOUR garden!, I like the curly wurly creation, a bird scarer perhaps? made from tin cans?

  19. Dead right Josie, tin cans. I've run out of them. Now need to go and get a four pack of Blackthorn Cider, and sup em quick, ha ha. Not a bird scarer though, it doesn't have a function.

  20. If you don't like birds carry on with your art. Scary enough to keep all wildlife away!
    A strange choice though for someone who I thought loved the natural world.
