“Water is a manifestation of the multitude of wave energies that surround us, a formless, colorless, tasteless, odorless “billowing solid” (Wallace Stevens), visible to our eye only with the addition of light. A single drop potentially mirrors everything that surrounds it. Water embodies the concept of endlessness, of complexities repeated fractally from one drop to the vast sea. I expose the identity of the ancient body of the ocean with integrity by being hyper-observant to its nature, focusing on the structure, synchronicity, and oscillations of the waves.” Ran Ortner
I have nothing more to say to finish this week. Only one more thing: Look at those stunning paintings of water and waves by artist Ran Ortner. Wow!
I wish you a weekend full of stunning moments, many hours outside and hopefully dry days!
