Ugly Beauty

I watched a BBC TV program called Ugly Beauty , which struck a chord with me.

"Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it" Confucius

Beauty of textures:

Jorge Otero Pailos' piece 'The Ethics of Dust: Dog's Palace, Venice", included in the Venice Biennale, questions the nature of beauty by capturing the layers of dirt an pollution in a layer of laytex moulded from the wall of the palace. Beautiful illuminated imperfection.

Carl Andre has a love of material and surface; raw and industrial.

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful we must carry it with us or we find it not" Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beauty of emptiness

James Turrell creates a space for reverie; taking time to observe the changes in light. Light as a pure media: Art as a way of finding meaning.
