Sculpture 37: "The Way Through"

I have always been entranced by that old illustration, variously titled Flummarion or Universum - supposedly of a man who reported finding the juncture between earth and the heavens, and having peeked through. Originally about astronomy, it also evokes spiritual feelings - breaking through the mundane to the spiritual level.

I took a few of the picturesI shot at Tsuki Mura, Edo Japan, InWorldz grid, and treated them a bit like woodblock prints. Less subtle than the real thing, but interesting. I will bring some of these photos to Gallery Freenote soon.

Teal Freenote in VHAC show opening June 4th

I will have several pieces in the new Bauhaus themed show at the Vista Hermosa Art Center. I have created 3D variations on two of my RL digital fine art works. These two works, SL representations of the RL works, plus my new sculpture "InsideOutsideInfinity" 

Many people remember the blockish, modern geometry of the Bauhaus School, but often forget that Klee and Kadinsky were also of the Bauhaus. In 1920, Klee wrote: "'Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth, things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realites..."

The opening is Sat, June 4, 2011.
