<![CDATA[THE CiC  code for the sea I see]]>Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:42:44 GMThttp://rosannetruxeslivingston.com/thoughts--images/the-cic-code-for-the-sea-i-see]]><![CDATA[February 09th, 2016]]>Tue, 09 Feb 2016 23:33:23 GMThttp://rosannetruxeslivingston.com/thoughts--images/february-09th-2016LIFELINES:  the show that lost its place
What was supposed to be a four-month run turned into a ten day blip, or as some might say, a pop-up. 

Lifelines opened on Feb. 14 then nine days later, Saturday the 23rd, and with no warning, orders came from above to take it down.  The entire enterprise left the following Tuesday.

Reason: landlord greed.

The sadness is the loss of yet another exhibit venue in Santa Barbara.

I thank everyone who came to the opening and all of you who intended to see the show.  It was an honor sharing the space with Francine Hirsch.

A truncated version will be exhibited, at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club, throughout July.  Hope to see you then.

SITTING DUCKS:HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT/SITE    FLOCK Lotusland, Montecito, CA RT Livingston 2015

 SITTING DUCK comes from the time in a duckling’s life when the pinfeathers haven’t yet developed into feathers. Trapped on ground they are at their most vulnerable. This installation is a metaphor for our own vulnerability and an idiom warning of attack. The piece is about the plight of birds everywhere, whether through the site of a gun, or through the sites of corporate chemical barrels. Hiding in plain sight refers to looking and not seeing something obvious

Wooden mallard decoys, camouflaged as rocks, get lost in a maze of river rock.  

Their survival depends on them not being seen.

Camouflage is the act of making something blend into its surroundings. Camouflaging hunters’ decoys is an absurdity.  Decoys are meant to attract other ducks, not hide from them.  Its origins are in the First World War when camouflaged battle dress became standard issue.  

The military explored Pablo Picasso and George Braque’s cubist concepts 
in the development of the art form.
