Photographing Public Art

Public art encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks, or outdoor public places.

Public-Art

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculpture to discover it”          Michael Angelo

The above statue is that of Elizabeth Crichton (1779 – 1862) who was a British philanthropist who founded the Crichton Royal Hospital, in Dumfries, Scotland.  Elizabeth Crichton-Wikipedia

Indian Culture

“The role of the arts in creating a conducive ambience for the spiritual pursuit has always been central in this culture. It is not accidental that the most powerfully consecrated temples were also vibrant centres of dance and music” Sadhguru

Who is the real Indian?

One can easily get confused about the usage of the term INDIAN

My understanding is the word ‘Indian’ refers to people from India.

I don’t understand the reason why Native Americans are referred to as Indians.

Do they call themselves Indians? I don’t know.

Further, I get confused as to why the word ‘Indian’ is used regarding people from Caribbean countries.

Or maybe Christopher Columbus wrongly thought he entered India!.

So who is the actual Indian?

No idea.

You can help me if you know more about this.

Indian Art

“Indian Art broadened my seeing, loosened the formal tightness I had learned in England’s schools. Its bigness and stark reality baffled my white man’s understanding… I had been schooled to see outsides only, not struggle to pierce”  Emily Carr, Canadian Artist (quotehd.com)

She was a controversial artist according to a few.

Everything one does or did or says can have supporters or opponents. That is the way of life.

Maybe readers from Canada can enrich us about her.

Art vs Music

Carvings, sculptures and statues

What is the difference between sculpture and painting ?

“Sculpture is made by taking away, while painting is made by adding” Michelangelo

Wall carving

“You are God’s chisel; it is you He uses to create masterpieces.” Matshona Dhliwayo

statue

A parable: “A man was examining the construction of a cathedral. He asked a stone mason what he was doing chipping the stones, and the mason replied, “I am making stones.” He asked a stone carver what he was doing. “I am carving a gargoyle.” And so it went, each person said in detail what they were doing. Finally he came to an old woman who was sweeping the ground. She said. “I am helping build a cathedral.” …Most of the time each person is immersed in the details of one special part of the whole and does not think of how what they are doing relates to the larger picture” Richard Hamming

Sculpture

“We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them”  Anais Nin
