One of our main avenues, close to my home, has become the showroom of some of the best known sculptures by Henry Moore. The abstracts and semi-abstracts bronze shapes stood in contrast with the stone sculptures that there are in the same street depicting old kings of the ancient kingdom of Navarre. And,during the Christmas Season, they even shared their space with the festive illumination, depicting stars and snowflakes. Lots of contrasts to think about and enjoy, because the mix was a good one. This is how it looked “Oval with Points” by Henry Moore with the Christmas lights on our streets.
Semi-precious in a wide variety of colors. *** Miniatures serve as iconographic objects. Not real people, places or things, but simplistic versions of such. This allows for abstracted views of reality. The perfect medium for creating visual representations of memories and emotions – abstractions of reality within themselves. *** An introspective, introverted empath, bursting with anxiety and 90s kid nostalgia, Tourmaline (JNW) creates images full of desolation, malcontent and longing by transforming her hand-built miniature tableaus through her camera lens. Her images draw influence from her midwestern roots and Florida youth. Tourmaline (JNW) graduated from the University of North Florida in the Spring of 2013 with a Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Photography, and minors in Art History and Professional Education. She resides in Jacksonville, FL with her boyfriend and cat. ***
