|Jeremy Miranda " Please be careful"|
The painter Jeremy Miranda's title for this work really struck me. Its a poetic and whimsical work but the plea resonates loudly - or does so with me! I have notes with quiet alarm that tourism has increased massively to the Antarctic and I have to wonder about this need to go into fragile eco locations and take a heap of photos for what purpose exactly?
I certainly understand why scientists, photographers on projects and such people go there... but tourists and mining companies I guess I put in the same category of "WHY?"
Jeremy Miranda: 'Icebergs and cruise ships don't mix well so please be careful.' See this other works at his Etsy site.
The following works are from his website:
|pathway, 20" x 24"|
|houseboat, 20 " x 24 "|
|new growth, 46" x 44"|
|untitled, 30 " x 26"|
|parlour, 54" x 50"|
|someday, 22" x 30"|
If these works speak to you go have a look at the website images... I found them very compelling... there seems a few very strong and quite different tendencies going on in his work and yet they marry so well... for me there's a lot to 'read' in them...
well...its still raining here... there was a long dry spell this morning between drizzles and downpours. My brother and his wife however are in New York... holidaying!!! JA had to cancel her birthday dinner booking on the 26th due to the snow storm... a bit sad... 50th birthdays are special ...still I'm sure they will long remember this one! They sent me this image this morning... which makes me grateful that I'm simply dealing with a bit of continuous wet weather .... nothing to complain abut here!
This was the view from their hotel or cafe.... not sure... but you get the picture! This is indeed a novelty for most of us in OZ!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JA!!!! (like your bonnet!)
