More art on my Saturday a few weeks ago. The Modern Museum of Fort Worth featured Frank Stella - A Retrospective. Wow - The man is prolific and still creating. Over 120 works featured painting, reliefs, maquettes, sculptures, and drawings. Some of the pieces are massive. The colors pop and seem to move on the wall.
The huge sculptures were my favorites. They flowed and seemed to reach out and draw you in. The man experimented with geometry and space. Here's a quote from Mr. Stella:
Virtual space has no ground. That's the beauty of it. It's about destroying ground so you can explore all the dimensions and viewpoints.
Frank Stella is an artist with no boundaries.
Sounds like a great exhibit! I never really check out art museums, but when I worked for the Arts Commission in my 20s, we were always required to attend receptions at them. I got my fill of sculptures and paintings during those six years!ReplyDelete
As you can tell I enjoy Ft Worth's selection. Culture for an hour!Delete
No boundaries is sure a great way to be at ones seaReplyDelete
Run amok indeedDelete
A great exhibit, wish I was near enough to go.ReplyDelete
Indeed. You would enjoy itDelete
I've not heard of him! I'll have to google his work!ReplyDelete
I'm not up on modern artists either, but I wander into The Modern in FW to learn.Delete
I'm really glad JoJo said that. I never heard of this artist before, either, but now I'm intrigued. No boundaries? Sounds like work worth exploring. Thanks!ReplyDelete
We went to the movies this afternoon and saw something that made us laugh out loud. It's called "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates." It isn't educational, and has absolutely no redeeming social value. But it was FUNNY! (Yeah, a bit sophomoric, but hey! We're still young on the inside...)
Have a super weekend.
worth exploring indeed.Delete
And any time Zac Ephron takes his shirt off, that IS redeeming social value. Rah!
