I love the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao : it was opened in 1997 and is the work of architect, Frank Gehry. Considered ground breaking 20th century architecture, Gehry used new shapes and materials and said "the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light". These images were taken for my ARPS Panel with the following Statement of Intent:
“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare. “ W.H. Davies
Sometimes in our busy lives we look at the obvious and see the entire picture without taking time to really look.
The Guggenheim is a museum created to house modern art, but I am fascinated with this extraordinary building and the materials and architecture used to create it. I have tried to capture the play of light and shadows on the titanium, the curves and lines, the contrast and reflections that create images of their own in this wonderfully unique building.
In my panel I wanted to demonstrate how the abstract images I see show that there is as much art to appreciate in the structure of the Guggenheim in Bilbao as in the exhibitions within.
