Something I have loved over the years of our many military moves is sketching our homes. I enjoy looking back on a series of places we have lived. Every single one hand drawn with it’s own unique design. Sure I can take a photograph but I’d rather take the time and let my creativity flourish. Be prepared for more to come. 🏡
History Theory II / Stage I
A special abstraction of Isamu Noguchi’s sunken garden.
Noguchi’s stone gardens featured water. This integrated Japanese aesthetics with Western modernism and was an entry and exploration in “sculpture from water” seen in his subterranean water garden Sunken Garden at the Chase Manhattan Plaza, a meditative and contemplative space viewed from above or at ground level enclosed by a curved glass wall. The New York garden features black boulders sourced from Uji River in Kyoto, surrounded by a floor of tiles intricately placed to resemble raked stones similarly found in a dry landscape garden.
The sea of rooftops which is Paris. I had finished the 60 page sketchbook I bought for the Paris drawings with yesterday’s sketch and had to use a new one. The heavier gauge paper was quite a different experience with the graphite.
