I just returned from a four-day road trip InSearchOfAmerica to the Chicago and Rockford IL area. It was quite a trip and made up for the very disappointing one that preceded it. One site I just came upon ended up one of the most enjoyable. It was at the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens. The special exhibit on display was from the artist Bruce Munro. From his book that I purchased it stated that he captures light based themes. I will be talking more about that in some coming posts but for now I wanted to give you an idea of what that description means.
I became very fascinated by the idea of using light as primary artistic medium and hopefully will be trying my hands at it in the coming months.
The one picture below is kind of my version of playing with light. The octagonal shapes and sparkles are from a Munro picture on the wall and all the other things in the picture are actually reflections off the picture glass of the other objects in the room. Kind of neat, if you ask me..
