Drifting

 
Posted by Picasa


Another piece from the Florida Consortium of Art Schools exhibit at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts. This one is entitled "Drifting" and is by Kristin Schimik from the University of Florida. This picture is definitely worth enlarging to get a better look!

You really have to enlarge it to get the full effect. Very interesting.

It is very interesting. Are those tall radio /cell towers? Fascinating piece.

Do you know what it's made of? It is a very interesting piece.

How very lovely! What an unusual piece!

Thank you for sharing this, my dear!

I like this a lot! I wish I could say it was mine.

Jacob said...

I would like to know what the artist had in mind. (At first, I thought it was a large, odd-shaped, chocolate cookie!)

Upon enlargement, I wouldn't be surprised if the artist was not making a statement about how the world is drifting into chaos and we, the people, right along with it...

I think Jacob is right, this object really does look as if it is edible.

Eamon said...

That really is interesting. What are the dimensions Lois?

Lois said...

Not exactly sure of the dimensions Eamon, but if I had to take a guess I would say around 24 inches wide and about 12 inches tall.

Lois said...

Oh and I'm not sure what it's made of either. I tried to find out but couldn't. It actually was my favorite piece from this show!

Hilda said...

Now this, I like! Dreamy and understated and you need to get up close to truly appreciate it.

Tash said...

You are right, very impressive when enlarged. Nicely captured.

Clytie said...

Holy cow! It's awesome!

Lisa Wilson said...

I wonder where in the world they got that idea? It is very unique! I like anything that looks like chocolate. ;)

This piece is made of fired clay, with some cold finishes. Beautiful sense of scale and materials.
