‘This Side Of The Grave (Gothic View)’
‘Symbols Of The South Pacific’
A Fijian masi (or tapa) cloth detail.
Mesmerising geometric symbols, telling tales from islands in the Pacific.
Repetition of pattern and bold signifiers, in traditional form, but somehow modernist.
Art that, in the way of all good art, is redolent of its origins but transcends place and time.
‘Pluviophile’s Dream III’
…lost in this watery dreaming, just can’t see my way clear…
‘Pluviophile’s Dream II’
…more diamonds on my windshield…
‘In The Pines’
The below song ,an old favourite of mine from Western Australian group The Triffids, came to mind as I walked through some coastal pines the other day. A bit mournful, like the wind whistling through the pines…
…waiting to turn and churn again…
…I came to the garden for peace and softness – there was none to be found…
Or like sparks igniting unexpected insights.
Going off on tangents, in every direction, hard to control.
It wouldn’t be any sort of mind life without them.
Sometimes they make no sense at all; at other times they are the missing piece in a puzzle.
Thoughts are just that – thoughts. You don’t have to act on them, but you can!
I mean, this post was going to be something completely different until the above image sent my mind off and running somewhere else.
So, I will leave you with these random thoughts for the day, and wish you moments of your own filled with delightful randomness!
Another building art related shot from last Sunday’s walkabout in Auckland’s Ponsonby.
Abstract snow (or maybe ice cream!) appears to melt from window sills.
Literally, very cool!
‘Rose Tinted Buried Memories’
Why is it that we look back with such fondness on what lies half buried in memory?
…you wear it well..
Another cargo ship about to dock in Auckland yesterday morning – love the leaping blue dolphin emblazoned on the side of this vessel!
…envy – it’s complicated…
