paste and paint

Standard

The kids have been out & about, transforming the neighbourhood into a mixed media collage.

“Scissors, paste, images, and genius in effect superseded brushes, paints, models, style, sensibility, and that famous sincerity demanded of artists.” René Magritte

“If one looks at a thing with the intention of trying to discover what it means, one ends up no longer seeing the thing itself, but thinking of the question that has been raised. The mind sees in two different senses: (1) sees, as with the eyes; and (2) sees a question (no eyes).”
René Magritte

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a Horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.

    • Thank you 🙂 I have been taking pics here and there but came across the majority yesterday… I have a real affection for the stencils & paste ups.

  1. The level of talent of these graffiti artists never ceases to amaze and the Magritte quote is perfect for the collage. I really enjoy these posts, EllaDee. Thanks.

    • Thank you 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy. Street art is not to everyone’s taste but I love going about my walks and seeing it. It seems real and live, as it’s ever changing.
