Living in an Upside-Down World

How is it that the world is so full of beauty and evil—all at once? Even the understanding one gets from religion doesn’t smooth the discrepancy one feels when such extremes commingle. All the world is a blending of these.

It’s rare that something so perfectly captures this complexity in such a simple way. Maybe it’s even more than rare…but the experience is high art, even when depicting rubbish, refuse, and rubber tires swimming in open sky and water. Lights reflect off discarded bags, cigarette butts and wavy tree limbs. It’s just beautiful. To cap it all off (more than just the co-mingling) everything is upside down, posing the reflected world as real.

I haven’t seen inside his other galleries (they weren’t working for me), but Robin Soulier’s Ephemerals gallery (#1) still has me awestruck. Enjoy!
