– Columbine, 2015 –
Ashley Lily Scarlett and I have started a new blog called Between Scarlett and Guest. It’s a dialogue in pictures. You can read/ eavesdrop on the conversation here.
Nicely abstract! Or is it a head??!!
Thanks very much, Sue! I suppose it could be…
Satisfying composition and texture. I enjoyed waking to the images’ s reality of color and shapes. If my mind was flooded news that Prince Charles will be visiting the neighborhood where I work – this morning’s impressions might have been perfect.
Wait, they are. I just forgot about the prince.
Thanks very much, Barry. Have a great day.
An interesting collage again, Richard; I’m intrigued by the name, though. Why Columbine?
Thanks very much, Richard. Columbine is the name of a character in the Commedia dell’Arte.
Ah, cool… (I was thinking of an 80s song or the American shooting!)
I was intrigued by the name too. I thought of the Columbine massacre.
If you Google the name, that’s pretty much the result you get, but this Columbine is connected to Pierrot in the previous post. (I’m not sure I’d ever be in a position to make an adequate or sensible visual response to a massacre in another country.)
I agree with you: making a “sensible visual response to a massacre” can be difficult. I wouldn’t do that either.
Fantastic, Richard! A hint of Juan Miro.
Thanks very much, Ellen! Yes, definitely at the back of my mind.
…and very suggestive as well.
Thanks very much, Rabirius. I can see that.
Great movement in this one.
Thanks very much, Ashley!
This one Pierrot (preliminary investigations into viable spaces), Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah), Fool & There are absolutely cracking Richard
Thanks so much, Leon! Much appreciated. More (very slowly) coming…
A great sense of fading fun and celebration in this work Richard.
Thanks very much, Patti!
A moving farewell “pas de deux”.
Thanks very much, Marcelo. Much appreciated. Really glad you like it.
Spiralling inward – Columbine dances.
Very intriguing composition.
I always associate Columbine with A Midsummer Night’s Dream and magical faerie bowers – but that terrible event in the states has unfortunately stained the word with ugly connotations.
Yes, that was awful. It’s funny how certain words become kind of off-limits because of their associations. When I titled this the events in the US didn’t enter my head – it is of a piece with the previous picture and named after the female part of a Commedia dell’Arte dramatic equation. It was only when I googled the name to check the spelling that it clicked with me.
I love the color in this, Richard!
Really glad you like it – lots of fun to put together.
Reblogged this on rebloggobbler.
Thanks very much, Douglas.
Wow! The vehemence here is intense! Fantastic!
Thanks so much – the three I made around this time were pretty strongly felt. I’ve relaxed a bit since. Makes me think I should revisit this working practice…
