AGO – art gallery review highlighting shadows

AGO in Toronto has a long standing display of Henry Moore sculptures.

This entry is homage to textures, shades, contrasts, rough edges and soft endings.

In 2016, AGO added the famous Claes Oldenburg burger – thus a token burger texture image had to be a part of this photostory.

Ghost like contrasting sculptured shadows, amidst the spinal archway of the AGO.
A world all of its own – AGO.

love-squared-graffiti-large-web-listingQuestion remains: what is love to man?

Has anyone ever truly figured out that answer?

This photo:
Part of a large graffiti message along the streets of Toronto.

What does it mean to really love? the man seems to ask.

Art in Urban Decay

There is a subtle beauty in the decay of modern humanity.
Places destroyed, waiting. Patient. Stoic perhaps. Holding on to remnants of what was.

The past decaying into present beauty.  Art in Urban Decay.

Hot July – Flowers Up Close and Personal

The heat of July works its magic. Flowers bloom. The bees are out in full force. Taking time to enjoy this splendour, I want to share what I love most about the hot days of July: beautiful wild flowers, up close and personal.
