Art is all around us

I was facilitating a couple of workshops in Melbourne last week (work-work); and I heard myself saying that how the world looks can often depend on the lens we look at it through. If your into the landscape and green that is what draws the eye. If you are into art, texture, layers etc then that draws the eye.

So it is not strange that even though the trip was hectic my eye was drawn to some of the design features in my room including a photo of a tram that had been blown up and stencilled onto the wall.

And some sculptures in the surrounding walking areas.

 All part of a rich art life.

  1. Art is everywhere you look, as long as your eyes (and heart) are tuned in. As are yours, Barry.
