    LOOK AT THAT KIDS STRUT in the third! Wow, I’m charmed.

  • Dick

    What is it about? I hate this art school mentality that all these photos have to have some “meaning”. Great photos, especially like the first one.

  • Spot on Dick. Art doesn’t have to have some deep seeded message or meaning. That’s half of the beauty of it, and a lot of people lose sight of that these days.

  • phil

    yeah agreed dick and davidisrestless spot on. as for david kus just looked at your blog and doesnt look like any of your photos have more ‘meaning’ than these, if any at all. dont see what you mean by your question.

  • joey

    the first photo represents the characteristics of great painting. the closer brim of the pool, the drain and skater all lie on the focal point to put a vertical emphasis that spreads towards the bottom. the shadow of the farther brim onto the bottom of the pool is an odelisque like those seen in the venus of urbino or olympia by manet, which is balanced by the pendant which is the shadow of the person standing by the steps. very well done.

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.
