Ever wonder what I'm thinking?

Aug 25 2015 Learned something new this weekend! (another cool place to go before you die)Category: About Me     09:51PM   0

Have you ever been wandering around a store, seen a piece of art and thought to yourself "Hm, I like that."? That's kind of as far as I've ever delved into the art world too, excluding one previous trip to an art museum where I was promptly presented with what can only be described as a collection of dildos. Because, of course.

Despite prior experience, I found myself driving towards The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art, hoping for the best. MADI art is, basically, anything that is positioned off the wall, isn't constrained within a frame, and utilizes geometric figures. Know what that means? Well according to Trip Advisor, there's no real deeper meaning, you can just like it. I was sold! I typically "appreciate artwork" that is more abstract, with bold colors. Kind of... eye catching and beautiful just for the sake of it. Don't get me wrong, I like thought provoking art too, I'm just a novice, and it's typically wasted on me. This seemed like a good way to enjoy some sights and get a little culture without feeling like I had none, and I'm really glad I did! 


This piece, by Salvador Presta, is really cool in person. There are cubes hanging from the ceiling, obviously, but they cast a shadow behind it which creates a lot of depth and creates a really interesting overall effect.







The colors in this Gregorio Vardanega were stunning, and even when you got up close, the detail was incredible for what seems like a bunch of circles. Once again, pictures don't do it justice! The colors a lot of the artists used were really vibrant and beautiful, one of my favorite ways of judging the quality of a piece *ahem*




This particular little place is in Dallas, and has two floors covered wall-to-wall and in between with all kinds of sculptures, pictures, hanging mobiles, glasswork, chicken wire... things you've never even thought might look cool or could ever look like art were actually really fun to stand around checking out! It's a quick walk through too, maybe an hour, so you don't even have to feel like you're making some huge field trip that you might get sick of half way through. The woman who runs it is lovely, and is helpful and informative without being imposing. They have a permanent collection that is pictured online, but every 3 or 4 months they bring in loads of new artwork that I really wish I had snapped a picture of for you guys! There was a gigantic wooden sculpture that could be yours for a cool $88,000. There was a wall covered in squares of woven fiberglass. There was even a kinetic cube made from light and panes of glass! If you're ever in the area, it's definitely worth checking out.
