    Hiromi...

    Ma Kettle and I were amazed to find exhibits by this artist with a sign saying 'TOUCH ME'. Artists normally want the exact opposite.

    Being Canadian, Ma and I were compliant with the request, and reached down to floor level in order to squeeze and fondle a large display of heavy rubber membrane baloons, piled one on top of the other. Much to our surprise, instead of our fingers sinking into a rubbery mass, we encountered the hard surface of blown glass, coated with a flat black paint.

    The artist Hiromi, creates the glass balls, by blowing each piece seperately, and while still red hot, fitting each sphere to sit perfectly on top of one another.

    The picture is of the same type of glass sphere, except as you can see, these look much like balls of mercury spilled from a thermometer.

    .

    rather impressive...

    In an old church, near the archives of Venice, was an exhibition of this kind of artwork.
    Beautiful & impressive & confusing for mind and eyes.
    I think this was put out here to point people to the exhibition but unfortunately there was no further information.

    Galleria d'Arte Il Canale

    Canal-entrance to an art gallery, too bad we did not have time to visit any of those.
    This picture shows what I like about Venice: they are not trying to make old buildings look new and shiny, no they just allow the buildings to be their age without looking run down or anything.

    Fabulous, isn't it? Errrrr, I didn't buy it, would love to, but, it's the beginning of the tour & it's just not feasible to do all shopping here! Next time, yes, next time, Venice shall be my last stop ;-)!
