Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.

    Congratulations, Bruce! You’ve been featured in Abstract Lines on October 9, 2011!

    You’ve taken a very refreshing look at that coiled hose, Bruce. I enjoy the vibrant red of the wall against the matte red of the bar, and the contrast they both create with the white hose, but am deeply impressed by the motions of the hose. For as precise a shape as that semicircle is, the hose twists, turns, separates at the bottom, and even protrudes high on the left, as if about to spill over.

    For something meant to provide organization and structure, I delight in the hose sharing little of the semicircle’s rigid control. Practicality aside. :P

  • Thank you Richard and the group. Much appreciated!

    Think you are starting something of an interesting precedent here Richard .. a host who provides specific insights into what prompted an image/work to be considered for featuring! This was even more appreciated. Always interesting to hear WHY people respond to RB works in more detail.

    Thank you again for your hosting and for your making the additional time to supply such comments.

  • Hope you don’t mind, I commented wider afield here
