Paul Newman, by Dennis Hopper
Nets are everywhere. Even in my garden! These ones are to keep things out.
I have been exploring ageing and the effects ageing can have on the brain. Neural networks are effected by strokes but brain plasticity means that sometimes other areas of the brain can take over functions that have been damaged.
However I am also interested in the intrinsic beauty of nets and the shadows they cast. I have made a series of square nets in natural and black linen. Some of these are single, some layered. Then last week an image by Dennis Hopper of Paul Newman taken in 1964 appeared in the Canberra Times. It shows the shadow of a wire fence cast over Paul Newman.
