Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge – Bend

thanks to Sue W and GC for hosting the Weekly Prompts https://weeklyprompts.com/2023/01/21/weekly-prompts-weekend-challenge-bend/

Bending implies that you or something is flexible, either physically or mentally. When a person bends mentally they are able to see both sides of an opinion or argument and can ‘bend’ or change their own way of thinking. Bending physically is easier to demonstrate in photographs.

The Monsieur Rose at the Bon Marché

…..by artist Philippe Katherine

On a recent trip to the Bon Marché in Paris we were delighted to come across a larger than life art exhibit of large pink characters suspended high above the atrium or hanging onto the railings or standing on the floor waiting for shoppers to pose for photos.

Inside the store there was also a special gallery set aside for more of Philippe’s work.

Tuesday Textures from the AGO

….I love texture in art pieces

There are two main types of texture in art: physical or actual texture that you can feel or the illusion of texture, created by lines and marks made on the canvas. The photos that I took at the AGO last week have actual textures that you can but probably shouldn’t touch.

Photographing Public Art Challenge – #19

thanks to Cee for hosting PPAC this week https://ceenphotography.com/2021/10/22/ppac-19/

On a trip today to Guelph we ventured over to the Arboretum. It was just underway when I went to school there, some 50 years ago so many of the trees are now very mature. The colours were beautiful but to my surprise there were numerous and interesting statues and sculptures on the grounds. Here are just a few.
