Spiralling Into Something New…

My next visit during one of the 2019 “Parels” (Pearls) weekends, was to a sculptor.

I am not sure what I expected but it was certainly something different to what I usually go and see (art-wise).

If I think about it I find that painting is the favourite art form that I make an effort to go and see, that said, it pays to broaden the mind a little sometimes and step out of my comfort zone.

From the outside this looked like an ordinary home, but once inside was set up like a gallery, complete with name, date, detail, tags for many of the sculptures on the walls next to the pieces.

Most of the household furniture I expected to see was absent.

I have no idea if they have this space spare and use it as a “showroom” for their artwork, or of they cleared out their living room for the Parels weekend so that members of the public could enjoy the pieces without bumping into the dining room chairs.

I’m suspecting that it’s the former, due to the fact that there are name tags on the walls, maybe adult children have moved out and the artist now has space in their home to display their hobby. Either way, it’s an interesting space and whilst I was there a constant stream of visitors also arrived to enjoy this exhibition.

A few of the pieces appeared to follow a serpentine theme, so I’ve grouped them together here.
