Encounter of Waters

There is a beautiful installment at the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park.   The building at the start of the outdoor park usually has some sort of three dimensional art installment  but I had never seen anything on the wall before.  The piece is called Encounters of Water by Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto. The scale is large which creates drama but at the same time the amount of detail is fascinating.  Simplicity is an understatment as Cinto uses only blue paint and silver marker, employing only lines and curves and one theme of waves.  But there is nothing simple of the time and effort it must of taken her and her volunteers to create waves of awe and emotion to the viewer.  It's a great prelude to the Puget Sound water while walking through the park!
