Invitation to the Blues for Michelle's soloexhibition "Blue Mood"
«Out to the blue and into the black» was a song by Neil Young in 1979, in the album «Rust never sleeps». In this game ofwords and layers of images, many things are hidden like Elvis Presley’s death, the war in Vietnam, the blinding fire of Napalm and the sudden fall into the darkness. Yet all the evocative power lies in these two colors (the blue and the black) filled with the symbolic character of... [more]

Narrations of indeterminacy
”What chaos and rhythm have in common is the in-between- between two milieus, rhythm-chaos or the chaosmos. ” (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987:313)
The awareness of the ephemeral and fleetingness of nature can be perceived underneath the visible surface of an artwork.

(2) the light source needs to be recognised as to whether it is direct or in-direct and also its colour temperature.
(3) a thumbnail sketch gives a quick and easy view of the balance of the composition.
