8 April 2017 – At the risk of annoying people who got it the first time, I’m going to belabour the point I wanted to make in my previous post.
It was all about the double visuals — the vases, and the not-vases.
I would like everyone to enjoy what artist Greg Payce worked so hard to offer us in this installation at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum of Ceramics.
“Positive/Negative,” I said in the post title. “Play with the spaces,” I urged in the post itself,
Positive space: the intricate — and very deliberate — shape outlined by each vase.
Negative space: the intricate — and very deliberate — shape outlined between each pair of vases.
Look between the vases, not at them.
And there they are.
A little boy, a little girl; a gift of deliberately arranged space.
