I thought I had better get an early walk in this morning, with the weather so unpredictable. It had been raining overnight and there was a slight dampness in the air as I fed the cats outside. Coffee drunk and custard tart scoffed, I stepped out of the door wearing boots and a pair of shorts. The dampness had evaporated, and it was starting to warm up. It was windy but not a cold wind.
I came across Michael the plumber. He was just finishing a job and was about to get in his van and drive off. Lucky I saw him. The first thing he said was, oh, I have a little job to do at your house, don't I. I said yes, Michael I am still waiting. We chatted and he said he will come next week.
Now, the pics from yesterday's visit to The Ropewalk in Barton. This exhibition is called Life. The artists are Phil Burman and Veronica Einloft. Phil creates his own symbols and forms to explore his experiences. He does not give explanations for individual pieces. He leaves the individual to arrive at their own interpretations. Veronica is a Brazilian sculptor and is inspired by things that make her feel alive. You can find more of her work here.
There is a yoootooob video of Phil and Veronica working together. Check it out here.
I find this kind of art difficult to grasp the meaning of. The pieces are mostly made of metal, wood, and stone. They do have titles, but I fail to see the connection to the actual piece. I think the art is in the arrangement of the materials. I might look in my shed for something I can make into a sculpture.
