Imagining the void

A couple of weeks ago for Sally’s Black & White challenge, I included a photo of a sculpture called ‘Void’ by Ramon Robertson. I’d seen the work at the Harbourview Sculpture exhibition, and loved it.

Well, it seems that I was only one of many and ‘Void’ was voted the exhibition’s People’s Choice winner.

The work consists of a series of figures atop a high wooden platform. What are they looking at? Are they waiting for something? What is the Void? Art asks questions and allows us to supply answers. But the answers our minds suggest are influenced by many things. I saw ‘Void’ on a sunny afternoon. Would I have felt differently about it on a dull day? At night?

For this challenge, I’ve edited one  image of the sculpture using different filters and overlays in Ultimate Photo Editor and Pixlr Express to change the mood of the shot. What do you think? Do the colours and patterns alter your perception of the work, or how you feel about it?

Wordless Wednesday: dreaming of escape

"There's a boat here with your name on it."  With too much work to to and a sinus infection slowing me down - I'm dreaming of escape. Boats moored on River Wear, Durham. Photo: Su Leslie, 2013.
