Héctor Fuenmayor, from the series Buddy Tree (2007)
"La geometrización de la naturaleza," (geometrization of nature) -- how smart does that sound! -- that I quote from the curator.
I took a Venezuelan art history class in college and loved, LOVEEED it. So this is a picture I took at an exposition we went to (field trip!) of Venezuelan contemporary art. It was definitely my favorite, I liked it because it was sooo different, beautiful and peaceful. I asked the curator what it meant, and he talked whilst I nodded wisely, and commented with intellectual phrases such as, "ahh ok ok" and "ummhmm"-- yeah très smart, I know! One of the many interesting things he said though, was that the tree is from the same species under which Buddha reached enlightenment (Bodhi tree). Notice the play in words??
