Excellent composition with the tree, the shadow works really well too. The institute could do with more gardners, a spot of weeding and trim of the grass would enhance the clean lines of the sculpture; budget cutbacks probably. Great image though.

Well composed ... agree that the place could do with more gardeners.

Have to confess, to my shame, that I was more interested in the Art than the blades of grass BlushSad ....I'll never learn Grin

Very good, like the wavy lines against straight.

So you're OK with the bits of grass then Si? GrinGrinGrinGrin (I mean, it's an Art Gallery, not Kew Gardens.)

Crumbs! These guys must cut their lawns with manicure scissors if they think it needs tidying up. An interesting sculpture - love all those lines. Smile

The clean lines of the structure remind me of a Joel Tjintjelaar image (minus the long exposure), and he is one of my photographic heroes... A superbly created simple image that shouts quality!

Thanks Ann, Mark. I'd forgotten to mention that MIMA were using the garden to conduct an experiment in Grass Geriatrics.

Agree the importance of the tree. The sculpture resembles a large c/h radiator with a wiggly front.
In twenty years' time when the weeds have taken over people may well wonder what on earth the sculpture is all about Smile
A nicely mimanilist image Blush

It looks different depending on where you stand, so is truly 3-dimensional, as sculpture should be. It's quite serenely beautiful, and I haven't done it justice.
I don't expect it to be there in even 2 years time, much less twenty!

"mimanilist" ............kindly leave the stage Wink

Cheers, Bill.

First thing I noticed was the ruthlessly truncated tree; then the weeds; then the nicely squiggly lines; then the straight ones.
My God, there's actually a good reason for visiting Middlesbrough here!
