Lime Line-with its eye-popping colors, dynamic geometry, optical rhythms and spatial complexity-is a far cry from the cool, reductive, stable structures of Minimalism. Dean Fleming was part of a New York group called Park Place. They explored pictorial space, the ideas of Buckminster Fuller (inventor of the geodesic dome), Space Age technology, science fiction, Einstein's Theory of Relativity and related concepts of fourth dimensional space-time. Fleming believed hard-edge abstraction was the language of contemporary culture.
Also happy birthday to Albert Einstein:
“There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Happy Pi Day! π
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein
Some images from this past Sunday’s nature trek. Devil’s Ridge received its name in 1863 during the Civil War. It’s said that few men would risk their lives to penetrate these bluffs and thickets during the war as a lot of rough characters would hide out here. About halfway, a little over two miles, you reach the highest point of the ridge. This is where butterflies will gather for an activity known as hilltopping in search of mates (applied to human social behavior – “cruising”). Seventy – five butterfly species it’s said can be found here during the summer months.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
