My Greek holiday (II) ...





Door in the local museum in Fira.

L & E gave me a lot of stick for taking this photo but change the expectations of pottery shards, Cycladic figures & wall frescoes & think Agnes Martin ... Eva Hess ... & suddenly the utilitarian mundane opens upon possibility (the thin 'drawn' rectangular line, the juxtaposition of tones, the play of shadows, the proportions ... ).

(& I don't care if this sounds like an entry for Pseuds' Corner. The eyes have it.)

No comments:

It seems my crystal ball was not so grubby ... ... resisting the temptation to say "told you so".
