From time-to-time I enjoy finding an image that I like and letting that image inspire the next image in a sequential path. Sometimes the sequences are difficult and other times they fall into place like garden stones. Often I hit a dead end and have to back up or start over. I search far and wide for the right image, and for today’s post we begin with a lovely painting by the master painter Cy Twombly.
Accidental Mysteries is an online curiosity shop of extraordinary things, mined from the depths of the online world and brought to you each week by John Foster, a writer, designer and longtime collector of self-taught art and vernacular photography. “I enjoy the search for incredible, obscure objects that challenge, delight and amuse my eye. More so, I enjoy sharing these discoveries with the diverse and informed readers of Design Observer.”
