art ~ the process of surfaces

I find it interesting that one ‘item’, when dissected,

can form, something else.

The process of deconstruction doesn’t just pertain to

‘disassembling’ something.

When you dissect something,

the unfolding process, of other surfaces, happens.

Take this log for example.

On it’s own, and in it’s own right,

it is a beautiful, bold

piece of macrocarpa.

It’s outer edges are rough and raw,

curved and robust.

You can see that it was once a proud,

free standing tree.

When it is dissected, it still holds it’s pride

and power;

but its shows us it’s insides.

It’s ridges and ripples.

It’s lines and veins.

It’s rough beauty.

It gives us something to touch;

to run our fingers over.

To smell,

To ‘taste’ with our senses.

It’s life and it’s essence,

is laid bare.

And we can see where it has been;

What it holds.

Upon closer inspection, it’s power

and it’s might, is shared with us.

art ~ tactile-tician

I hate being touched.

Physically, I mean.

But I am a tactile creature.

I love raw surfaces:

How they look,

and especially,

how they feel.

When I’m in need

of ‘centering’

or earthing,

my tactile self

emerges.

Only the macros can depict

what it is I want to say,

or ‘describe’ what it is

I can feel.

And when I need even more

depth,

or rawness;

only black and white

can convey that feeling

aptly.

It’s all part of my minimalistic,

no frills,

‘the devil is in the detail’,

tactile

approach and worldview.
