14th October '17: Infinity & beyond

Happy weekend, colourpeeps πŸ‹πŸŠπŸ‹πŸŠπŸ‹πŸŠ

In my local shoe shop when I was a kid, there was as a Start-Rite poster of two children walking down a road that went off into the horizon (see the poster by William Grimmond, below)Β @mutualart). I remember wondering where it went and I’d excite myself and freak myself out in equal measure at the thought of crawling into the picture to discover a destination of endless possibilities. I’ve always loved the idea of visual infinity – mirrors endlessly reflected in mirrors (the so-called Droste effect or ‘mise en abyme’) or an Escher staircase that goes somewhere and nowhere til the end of time. I had the same feeling when I saw this 3-D wooden picture at the new exhibition of Eelus at theΒ @lawrencealkingalleryΒ last week. ‘The Townsfolk Acted Real Strange From That Day On’ took me back to being little and wanting to know what was at the end of that road. Anyone else love these infinity images? Got any favourites?
