Playhouse

Playhouse, by sculpter Dietrich Wegner, is a twenty-foot-tall tree house posing as an atomic mushroom cloud, representing the contradictions between “two conflicting ideas”.

“When an image stands in limbo, between associations, it occupies a flexible place in our mind. Wegner creates images that are safe and unsettling, abject and beautiful…The ephemeral beauty of a mushroom cloud is frightening, how it floats for a minute, delicate and blooming, yet remains chaotic and utterly destructive. We experience a contradiction between what our eyes enjoy and what our mind knows.”

I’ve not long got back from a week long break in St Ives where we stayed in my aunt’s apartment on Porthmeor Beach.

It’s just a few doors down from the enviable studio space of artist Ralph Freeman, who’s recent works, shown here, really invoke a true sense of Porthmeor’s rugged beauty.

Spotted one of the seascapes of artist Paul Bennett whilst on holiday in St Ives last week.

The beautiful contrast of finely rendered mist with coarse-textured brushwork gives the paintings a sense of brooding calm which really needs to be seen ‘in the flesh’ to be fully experienced.
