I was at the Phoenix Art Museum on Saturday and I saw a show called Phoenix Rising. It was an exhibit of a variety of art works in the private collections of Phoenix residents. So, most of the pieces on exhibit have not been publicly viewed before. There was everything from masterworks by Monet to little known artists using all kinds of media. There was even a fashion element to the show. (I'll show you more about the fashion piece in a future post.)
The piece above is called "Blind Land" (and sometimes Green Mirror) by Teresita Fernandez. It's constructed of two layers of polished, precision-cut steel and green paint.
In order to give you a better idea of how it was constructed, I took this shot from the side. You can see that the two panels of steel are fused together about two inches apart from each other. I believe the back side of the panels are painted green but, I couldn't see the back at all.
I liked it. It fascinated me and I stood there studying it for quite awhile.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. I'm back at the Recoleta Cemetery and looking at it with an artists eye.
