Sunday Stills: modern art

Does modern art rock your boat or are you something of a traditionalist at heart? what does “modern art” mean to you?

On our recent trip to Zeeland, Holland, we visited some galleries featuring in the Hamstede Kunst art exhibition. These are some of the pieces which caught my attention.

Daily Post weekly photo challenge: work of art

This week’s challenge by the Daily Post was to share a photo of something that is a work of art to us. “It could be some actual “art,” like a painting by your grandmother or the misshapen but perfect clay sculpture your child brought home from kindergarden, or something most people wouldn’t consider beautiful at all, but that has meaning to you. The important thing is that it’s art in your eyes”.

Do you have a favourite sculpture that you keep returning to or can you only look at in a photo you’ve taken? Is it close to your home or one you’ve seen on your travels?
