“The Things I Do For Love”

“The Things I Do For Love”; who said that? I would in a good way but this quote came from Game of Throne (GoT) loaded with dark humor which I will not touch upon the details. With me, I went with my brother to Emily Carr to see the student’s realm of applied art to share his love of art.

Bone Yard (1)This piece on the floor is shaped like the map of South America. My first thought was its a boneyard ruled by savages with likes of the character in GoT. For a closer look and see the details of this art, I took a shot of some items.Bone Yard (2)

 

Here, a little boy’s upper body and a hand are protruding from the rocks.

“Why is it always the innocents who suffer most, when you high lords play your game of thrones?”

Bone Yard (3)

Not only a little boy is buried an animal’s skull shares the same ground with him.

“Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well.”

What was the artist thinking when preparing this? Unfortunately, I forgot to note the title of this art, narrative and the artist’s name.

Bone Yard (4)

Here, I see a man rising from the earth ready to wear an animal’s skull. I can imagine that there is a certain power for using it as a crown to mark his leadership.

“Power resides where men believe it resides. It’s a trick, a shadow on the wall.”

Bone Yard (6)

These bones are real!

Bone Yard (8)

“Opening your eyes is all that is needing. The heart lies and the head plays tricks with us, but the eyes see true. Look with your eyes. Hear with your ears. Taste with your mouth. Smell with your nose. Feel with your skin. Then comes the thinking, afterward, and in that way knowing the truth.”
