Lovers


This is one work from the Gardiner that I actually liked. The work is called Barque Saint Julien by French artist Georges Jeanclos. I find this piece really moving, there's something so real, yet haunting about the way these two are gazing into each other's eyes.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! I was lucky enough to get in a round of golf today, so it was a good weekend for me.

Interesting piece.

Mmmm ... I don't know. They look more like cast members of that walking dead show (not that I've seen it).

I've always liked this guy's work although I can't remember his name!

Week end sous la pluie...c'est assez beau et assez dur, moi cela me fait penser a deux enfants sauver de l’apocalypse nucléaire

The Gardiner is certainly a unique museum! I think I'd like this piece too...but I'd want to know the 'rest of the story'... I know you're supposed to make your own but (I hate to admit this) I kind of want somebody to tell me what to think about this piece.

Very artistic picture, poetic and romantic theme!

C'est assez déstabilisant parce qu'on dirait des enfants, je trouve...

My first thought was "Two youngsters in the cancer ward." By the way, Talia, who made it onto the Ellen show, is back in the hospital. She received some platelets in Gainesville, went home, but now is back at Arnold Palmer hospital in Orlando.

Has a certain scary quality.

A little too weird even for me. The sentiment is touching but not so much the peeling layers. Although I guess that's part of the message here.

Gorgeous, Halcyon. A fine piece of art and a fine photograph of it. Hope all is well up there.

Thank you for adding the link. The life story of the sculptor certainly informs this work...

Yes, it is so impressive.

These are lovely, quite poignant. Thank you for the link to the artist profile!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
