“DAS BUCH 23” has been purchased and donated to the Haliburton Sculpture Forest in Haliburton, Ontario. The interactive book is installed next to “TERMINUS” which was purchased in 2002. Marianne Reim
Indigo City Mixed Media 36 inches x 36 inches
My work takes inspiration from geometry. For me the square and the circle are starting points. And ending points. The square, defined by the horizontal and the vertical: it’s all you need. The circle: a snake biting its tail; the beginning and end; the still point. Geometric archetypes. But there is no perfect circle; there is no perfect square. The beauty of Pythagoras is within our minds. Rendered by the human hand, the square becomes imperfect, and becomes a part of the human world – where imperfection reigns. The rhythm of imperfection is beauty, where order and chaos dance, and sometimes balance. Indigo City is an assemblage of indigo-dyed Japanese paper, which has been cut, torn and assembled into a rhythmic grid.
I am very happy that jurors accepted my paintings, “Canadian Faces,” into such a prestigious N3XT Art Competition.
