Cover up the bust by derkert Cover up the bust by derkert
Re use of the re used!

Many years ago I partly covered up a bust made of plaster with the letter X. I had stolen (or re used) this idea from Jiri Kolar. [link] Some weeks ago I made a photograph at the home of its owner. Hm – I said to my sef maybe I can do something with this. I could and I did!

So I re used the pic "three for the festival" [link] and wrapped in round the whole thing. Which makes the 3-bust sort of flat – and strange because it still casts a shadow. In the last pic of the trio
I re used the pic Autumn. [link] But here I covered up only the bust and left the base untouched. Here The base, the shadows and even the cover of material hint three dimensionality – but no flat, flat, flat. It is inetersting to observe how the cover up pictures totally change the form of the bust.

This becomes a duel between what the eye sees and what the brain feels like it knows. Flat, flat, flat indeed!

I dream one day to attain that wisdom to get rid of form and reach the mulfaces of essences.

This is cool!

flat head sally was a nun
all her hats looked like a bun
or a steak, a stone, a brick,
flat head sally makes me sick

(not really - just for the rhyme :heart:)

old flat head
was no yet dead
he is reformed
and restructed
and resurrected
and waiting in the bed
