Our World – Double Sided Art


The Philbrook Museum of Art’s gardens has a number of sculptures that really add to the experience. of the gardens. Some of the sculptures are moved every now and then including the one above named “Negative Tree” by Menashe Kadishman. On the sunny side I couldn’t really make anything work.


When I got over to the dark side, so to speak (lots of people  think I’m already there) I found a better fit. A positive tree paired with a negative tree.

Doing my research for this post I found out that the sculptor died last week. See the link under “Related Articles” below for more information.

Have you done any pairings lately?

    That second photo is great, but I like the first one too. Because I have read about negative space in art; don’t think I’ve ever really understood the idea before. Now I sort of do.

    Honestly Yogi, I think you found the perfect vantage point in that second image. It’s almost like the negative tree is a cut-out of the tree beyond. I’m sure the artist would be pleased with your discovery. Well done!
