Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

travel theme: art

Ailsa’s challenge this week is to showcase a photo illustrating “art” in whatever form we choose.

Wikepedia defines Art thus: Art is a term that describes a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, but here refers to the visual arts, which cover the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media.

This installation has always tickled me – monument to the unknown washer women

it was a tottering pile of brightly coloured washing bowls seen in Luxembourg back in 2005.

More “conventional” art, maybe?

collages made by children, displayed in the tunnel in the Grund area of old Luxembourg

and finally, how about some floral sushi?

PS having just come across another day in paradise‘s contribution in which she mentions that her sister is an artist, I thought I would mention that my sister is an artist too.

you can see her work here. Since we live on opposite sides of the world to each other, I guess this counts as travel too.
