Lately I have become obsessed with patterns, whether they be in nature or through rote behaviour, patterns have been standing out to me. While this pattern awareness is nothing new it is somehow heightened lately and then along comes Rangoli, a word I had never heard before (there are many) but a word relating to patterns which is intriguing to me.
I have talked about Fibonacci before or at least I thought I did (I have many, many draft posts that never get fully fleshed out - maybe this was one of them) then suddenly the Rangoli is doing the same thing. The Fibonacci concept is so brilliant I would be ill advised to try and break it down for you and now Rangoli is right in there. Yet it all seems to go back to Fibonacci in one way or another.
Francis Bacon at the Met. One of my most favorite painters.
Mermaid Parade at Coney Island.
Looks like a busy weekend and its not even here yet!
Rangoli can only come from these influences and that is where it came from. I dont know how to properly credit these 6 blogs. I can make an award I guess.
If I say its one then I say its all - I have been influenced by these wonderful blogs, and probably others - the presentation - the 'clicks' it is all so magnificent and thoughtful. Thanks to blogs we see more - dont you think?
Francis Bacon looks like a Rangoli pattern...sort of.
