New waterscopies have arrived
The Waterscopies are an entire raft of studies on wood belonging to the second element in the "Four Elements" series, that of Water. Nature's essence, the most mercurial of all the elements, Water combines with Earth, Air and Fire to sustain all of life. In his Waterscopies, Dominique Vangilbergen continues his synaesthetic odyssey, exploring the poetical paradox of this heavily symbolic element, whether harnessed within the four walls of an aquarium, retained by a one-sided dam, or in the alternative untamed, free-flowing, rhythmic and mirroring our own inner psyche. In the artist's hands, the waterscope device has become a symbolic eye onto a world shaped by seemingly irrational forces, a nod to our origins in, and dependency on, this fickle medium, a reminder that we are but droplets in the vast ocean of life.
@mighty._.velma I remember us in my old room, and you, having seen all the pics and ticket stubs and kitchykoo I had on my wall, diagnosing me as acutely nostalgic. I fought it at the time, but here I am posting a #drawing of that old room (behind what was then the Riverhorse). So now I'm nostalgic for a time I spent being nostalgic. #sketchbook#sketchbook#redpen#zine#circa2003#worksonpaper
Happy Monday! I’m over gathering inspiration like a little squirrel gathers acorns for the winter. I feel like I work in cycles - paint my heart out, gather inspiration, paint my heart out, gather inspiration....does anyone else do that?? 🐿🌰🥜
