I found this in the street:
and it made me think of some landscapes by Anselm Kiefer.
One of the main differences of course being that my street kiefer is the size of a receipt and his actual paintings are monumental. Another difference being that while mine was made by a car tire, he intentionally includes materials like clay, lead, gold leaf, plants and seeds. Still I think Kiefer might smile at the little scrap I found.
I like Kiefer’s work quite a bit. I like how the work feels raw and immediate and the materials, while being simple come together in a way that renders them changed. In his work Kiefer deals with the relationship between heaven and earth often working symbolically. I also enjoy the visceral experience I have when I look at his work.
