Blog-a-long day 20/30: Random Thoughts Tuesday-Beauty in Simplicity
In Orvieto, Italy there is an art college from Boston (I forgot the name) that has students studying abroad. As we toured the campus we came across these masks that were hanging on a rustic wall out side of the school. The entire city of Orvieto, with it's ancient Etruscan Tombs, narrow cobble stone streets, twice weekly farmer's markets in one of the many public squares and the massive Duomo, is an excellent backdrop for artistic endeavors.
I was struck by the simplicity of the arrangement of the masks and the substrate on which they were hung.
There is great beauty in simplicity.
