Up Close on Sculpture

Recently I’ve collected various bits of debris on the beach to recycle and thinking about what is art. I consider myself to be quite creative and open to ideas, but art is very subjective isn’t it? I may be interested in Tracey Emin but I wouldn’t want to take her work home.
Broomhill sculpture garden has many thought provoking pieces, here are four, each with a close up,

  1. I love all those sculptures for different reasons, the first made me think of missiles, war and destruction but the last blue one was my favourite, loved the colour and shape. Thank you for sharing.

  2. From those close ups, you definitely HAVE to be there! Hubby has the clear message that I need to visit! After we come back from France though!! Lucky lady aren’t I?

  3. I wouldn’t want to take any of these home either Gilly, but they are each striking in their own way. Is the first a representation of the crucifixion?

  4. These are all thought provoking (yes, I mean it) and imaginative. I can’t say out loud what I first thought the first one is (heh heh). The blue one made me think of a hug slug and the one you call the spindly tree made me thing of books upon books up the branches and below. The close-ups show a completely different perspective. ❤

  5. No, I wouldn’t like to bring them home but isn’t that with most pieces of modern art? But specially the close-ups look quite interesting and I could consider to have a picture on the wall like that….

  6. Nice capture of these interesting art sculptures. Yes, indeed, art is subjective. I think the art we want to surround ourselves with is always different then the art we see and cannot figure out. These are art sculptures but aren’t for everyone including me. 😳

  7. I find them all interesting and I’m always curious as to what the artist was thinking. However, I wouldn’t want them in my house in or in my yard. But I always appreciate, even if I don’t like it or understand it.

  8. Man-made Art next to Nature’s Art, brilliant and amazing. Reminds me of an outdoor Art place in Napa my brother-in-law took me and my family last Spring. Exciting post my friend. Have a wonderful Summer and thanks for the recent visit. The post on London Summer was actually the trimmed version. Each day there was load full of adventure and warm memories. Take care!

I would love to hear from you . . .
