A pink reflection

The colour pink is so complex. Most people think of it as ‘girly’ or ‘too young’. But this hue is an amazing spectrum of colours.
The pink clouds of sunset in Hawaii. The pink of the inside of a shell. The pink of fairy floss. The pink of a new born baby panda.

This typographic exercise is my ode to a wonderful poem dedicated to pink.
Written by Claudia Krizay, it is a beautifully crafted reflection.

 
Heart felt and beautiful in its simplicity, Bucharest, Romania

Now Romania is not a place one thinks to go to, like one would plan and save to go to Italy, or Greece. But that is a pity as it is a land of strange connected beauty, the city of Bucharest is an odd blend of parks that are more like deep green forests right in the middle of the urban centre and the architecture, which defies classification, just keep on surprising, bemusing and intriguing.  While shiftazine was wondering these strange, unfamiliar streets, they discovered this exhibition. Now the artist only spoke Romanian, and shifatzine, while speaking the universal language of creativity, does not speak that particular tongue. So it was up to the work itself to speak for itself.
Make of it what you will, shiftazine thinks it is all very beautiful.

While this article may be a few years old it is still relevant. The GOMA in Brisbane is consistantly the most exciting art museum of the main land of Australia. It has an eye to the future while understanding the merit and importance of the past. It is incredibly inclusive but not from a ‘political correct’ point of view. Art is art, and where it comes from and what ever form it manifests itself in is all GOOD. 

The ‘Otherworldly’

This was an exercise in creating a mood, a narrative, to re enforce fundamental, deep fear of the groteques. A garbage bag, some masking tape and a couple of pieces of plastic. Crop the image tight. Throw some moody lighting into the mix and there you go.
