Maybe it just caught the light but I think my mind was focused on textures after leaving the Jean Paul Gautier exhibition at the NGV St Kilda Road. That carving has always been there, I just havent noticed it before.
The blockbuster exhibitions just go on getting better and better and become more and more overwhelming. Still kicking myself that I left it so late I couldnt go back a second time.
And that folks is a knitted dance costume. Soooo brilliant.
So maybe I was influenced by the poses of the models , but suddenly I noticed statues that had never really come to the front of my mind - or once again was it just the way they caught the light.
So walking around to the front.....
Not just textures but all those vertical lines.
Just love a gallery visit, always kicks the brain over!
