What do we see?

Standard

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”  Henry David Thoreau

I agree with Thoreau – what we see is all that really matters.  About a month ago, I was given the opportunity to photograph the work of an aspiring Vancouver artist. The title of his work was Daily Disasters.

The colours reflect the colours of Vancouver: bright flowers with blue skies and rain clouds.

 

 

 

 

The artist remains a mystery to me.  His paintings do not hang in an art gallery.  They belong to the public.

I see art, although some tell me it really is a garbage can.
