I hate this!!!  It is a piece of “artwork” that sits in the front of our small town post office. To me this is what gives “ART” a bad name. To most people observing it, it looks like junk taken from a junk yard and welded together. It was given to our fine village as a gift. Hmmmm…….. beware of free gifts I say. Of course we had to build a base for it to sit on and have a big ceremony to acknowledge such a fine gift. Spare me. Well I guess the good thing is we didn’t have to worry about it being an eyesore when it finally rusted, because it came to us rust and all. There is a program on Acorn TV (a channel of British TV which I love to watch) that is called “How To Read a Painting.”  Maybe there will be something on there about “How to Like a Piece of Rusted Junk”! Stay tuned!

I have shown the photo painted in the Watercolor App and the Brushstroke App too. I Loved the sky and tree branches in the Waterlogue App! But, Waterlogue couldn’t help this ugly art in the garden either! Blob that it is!  Brushstroke tried to make the most of it! As we all shall have to!

Enjoy the IPhriday Photo Challenge! Post a photo taken with your Phone on Fridays!

    Definitely art sculpture. The problem is context. I have seen this before, modern high concept abstract art gifted or purchased for a community or public institution. The artist’s intention is lost because the piece does not fit the surroundings. It lacks context and intention.
    Does the piece have a name/title ? Is it posted ? Is it part of a series that fits a specific theme ?

    Note that once you modified the image you created an aesthetic context of colour and texture. The second image is impressionistic and creates a much better blend abstract form and context of surroundings. 🙂

      Is it posted No
      Are town is near a lake some have suggested the different pieces represent a lake. Maybe things sunk at the bottom of a lake I think

        The piece does remind me of some of the industrial sculptures designed represent shipping and mining near the Great Lakes.
        Your visual interpretations were very well done. 🙂

    In our community, we have an expensive sculpture by a famous sculptor. It’s placed in front of a municipal building. We found out why it looks like a twisted “worm”: when you come out of the building, having paid a parking fine, it reflects how you felt just moments before. 😉 Some rusted sculptures can be quite ingenious; as elmediat says, it depends on the context. And hey, it gave you an opportunity to make some interesting observations and aesthetic improvements… 😉
