The outline of this piece started off as something I drew for my brother’s next tattoo. As this week’s topic is Zodiac I decided to make it into a finished piece.

Bing Wright (b.1958, USA) - Broken Mirror/Evening Sky (2012)

Broken Mirror/Evening Sky is a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.

The images are meticulously constructed through a combination of traditional documentary landscape photographs and the subtle manipulations of an image in the studio. Wright photographs sunsets, then projects the images onto mirrors he has broken in the studio. The mirrors are small, measuring just 14 x 11 inches. The artist re-photographs the reflection and then enlarges the image into a large scale format. This beautiful series incorporates Wright’s recurring themes of abstraction and representation – a contrast he masterfully balances by grounding these shards of images into a bold structure. While more abstract than some of his earlier works, the composition carries a narrative that enables the viewer to collectively experience the beauty of the sunsets the artist has captured, while facilitating an individual interpretation of the emotion they imbue. We are presented with pictorial images, fragmented and in disrepair – a reminder that everything beautiful is flawed and imperfect. Bing’s signature large format lends these images symmetry and exact composition, giving them a majestic quality. (src. James Harris Gallery)

Ana Teresa Fernández, Borrando la Frontera, performance, 2011.

The surreal act of erasing a border is documented in the short, Borrando la Frontera. A woman in stilettos and a black cocktail dress scales a 30 ft ladder on the sandy beach of Tijuana, bringing the sky back between Mexico and the US, as she paints the dividing fence blue. The film depicts the peace offering of creating the illusion of a “hole in the wall.” The protagonist becomes more visible as the wall starts to disappear into the blue sky. Her attire, the little black dress reflects the notion of prosperity in the US, moreover the funerary symbol of luto, the Mexican tradition of wearing black for a year after a death. Mourning those who have died in attempts of crossing this border to prosper.

Had to sort out invoices and other paperwork this morning. I decided to watch Home Movies to ease the boredom.
Of course I also had to paint a little watercolour scene to relax and get back into artist mode.
