Day 441

I went to the Frist Art Museum a few days ago and a particular piece - "Airborne Double" by Derek Fordjour - caught my eye...

Airborne Double uses a unique combination of texture and color to draw eyes toward the work. The juxtaposition of the two figures with the unique, textured background portrays both joy and composition. With the figures both mirroring each other and having their own unique features, both shapes draw the viewer in. The use of symmetry and pattern mirrors earlier art traditions found throughout history, yet gods and kings are not being depicted. The piece has a lively air to it, causing the viewer to nearly jump for joy in the process of beholding it.
