The lovely ponds
At the expo Cadaver Exquise at KunstpodiumT, Kim Reinders, a classmate of WdKA, had this poetic idea for us to cooperate. She would make little ponds out of mirrors, plants and white soil. She would create a sort of pool/pond for my fictional characters to reflect the drawings. I istantly loved the idea. It made me think of Hylas and the Nymphs(1896) by Waterhouse and also the song and the clip Were the wild roses grow by Nick Cave and the 'Bad Seedes' and Kylie Minogue. I love the romantic cruelty in both.
