Today we went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, as part of our 'ideas in art' module. There was a an exhibition of Isamu Noguchi's work, who to quote the Parks brochure was;
'one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Noguchi created and important body of work, including both small-scale and monumental sculpture, environmental projects, public commissions and landscapes as well as stage designs for the North-American choreographer Martha Graham. In addition, Noguchi developed some of the most influential pieces of furniture and household objects of his era.'
There was some really beautiful pieces of work, both sculptural and sketching. It was also quite strange to see things that had been part of Graham productions, considering a lot of my experience as a dance student has been influenced by her.
It was amazingly sunny (apparently this trip is always co ordinated with rainy days..), the trees looked stunningly autumnal and there were beautiful sculptures everywhere.
I thought to my self I love my degree.
