shed light

[Four minimalist abstracts, two of them collages, the beauty of old corrugated iron sheds in Australia, this one I found in Moss Vale, iron and afternoon light, hard softness, the beauty of rust, weathering, decay, ageing, old surfaces subtly subversive perhaps of the shiny new fake plastic unblemished eternally young & botoxed screen world…Perhaps also an example of ‘wabi sabi‘: “Wabi-sabi (侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin?), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō?), the other two being suffering (苦 ku?) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空 kū?). Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.” (Wikipedia)]
