Abstracts from near and far
Objects are concealed from our view not so much because they are out of the course of our visual ray as because there is no intention of the mind and eye toward them. We do not realize how far and widely, or how near and narrowly, we are to look. ...There is just as much beauty visible to us in the landscape as we are prepared to appreciate, - not a grain more. (Journal of Henry David Thoreau, November 4, 1858)
This little collection of new images is a sort of autumn windfall, collected under the harsh sun of the Eastern Sierra and on the rainy streets of London. Layers of peeling paint, decades of dust, centuries of wear - unintended abstract art is everywhere. And within the larger canvasses of street art, the smallest detail can take on a life of its own.
