2 Silver Tips
Where do I start? It’s a piece about contrasts. The hard edges of the railings against the soft indistinct foliage behind. The lines formed by the cobwebs are irregular and damaged, not the image of structure and order as we would typically think of when imagine a cobweb. The dominant feature is the railings topped with fleur-de-lis. The trailing cobweb leading to the first finial and a draped pair of web strands to the second, remind me of a mountain climber or maybe a cable car or ski lift.
There’s a strong contrast between the lightness of the railing tips with the bases and background foliage. The colours are muted almost black and white with a hint of ochre and maybe light green. The only colour interrupting this monochromatic world.
Lifeless railings, hard lines against the soft living foliage.
