Wolf’s Flea Market Collection: Patterns that rotate around a central point: Moore

 

 

This collection stems from my obsession with symmetry, sacred geometry, quilt patterns, hex signs, etc. The only self-imposed rule governing the collecting was no dinner plates or ashtrays as it seemed like cheating and would produce redundant or boring results.

  1. These photos look great and I’m happy to be able to spend some more time with this collection online.

    One thing that starts to happen with a collection like this is that it becomes clear that an object can be an excellent illustration of the theme, despite it’s shoddy qualities as an object (for example an item like a decorative lid from a cookie tin that is starting to rust and is missing the bottom of the container). If you wanted to grow this collection, you could really push the limits of what kind of objects illustrate this visual idea to include cruder, more damaged, or unlikely choices. The variety of materials, patterns and scales of objects make this feel like a very solid start.

    We’ll look at Claes Oldenburg’s “Raygun Wing” in class, which might suggest an approach to expanding a collection with a strong formal theme like this.
