Scintillating essence steal the show

Just one more look at the Keysook Geum exhibit on display at the Gallery Bienvenu, 518 Julia Street, in New Orleans. The paper covered iron wire figures make you feel a bit strange when no figure appears inside them. They seem to dance in space and the interplay of shadows feels the room.

This isn't a show that you just look at. This is a show that you "feel" and that redefines the space around you. You definitely would not be surprise to hear she has experience as a designer and a PhD in textile design.

I had a lot of fun photographing them. Wish I had enough space on the blog to show more.

I've got one more gallery to show you tomorrow and then we'll get back to Magazine Street. ...
come on back, we've got a pot of coffee brewing.

The mind is a wonderful thing. Give an envelope and we imagine what is in it. In this case the female form in all its wonder.

How beautiful - the forms and your photograph. Love the commentary too. I'd love to see these in reality and experience what you write about.

You are right, they seem to dance! Your photos are so well captured we can feel everything you say just looking at them. Both are great works, the artist's and yours.

I will check that out. I get downtown several times per week. Just have to walk down a block or so. Some great ideas if we stop and view.
