Found in Nature by Barry Rosenthal

Mimi’s Brainbreaker Week.
Which color do you like best, blue or green? We are aware that this is a very difficult brainbreaker: both colors are nice and the topic is horrible…

‘Found in Nature’ is a series of compositions that tell compelling stories about beach-trash. Barry collects previously discarded junk along the coastal areas of New York Harbor then curates and orders the objects by color, type and/or theme. (by/ via barryrosenthal.com)

About blue Ocean: “This is a playful image. The theme is simple. Groupings of random and unrelated objects tied together by a similar color hue. It seems unbelievable that so many objects share the same hue. I had even more blue objects to work with but didn’t use the ones that were either more magenta(purple) or more green(aqua). One other theme working here is anthropomorphism or the use of human like traits in combining objects. “Blue Ocean” has been exhibited in solo and group shows in the New York area.    “Blue Ocean” graces the cover of Brazil’s National Geographic Magazine’s Special Edition “LIXO” (“TRASH”).     Curate NYC choose “Blue Ocean” as part of a group show in the Conde Nast building, Times Square, New York, New York. November, 2013.    “Blue Ocean” was part of a solo show at Acres Gallery Brooklyn, New York. a gallery specializing in environmental issues. April, 2013.    ‘Anew’ at United Photo Industries a group exhibition of work that unearths beauty in the seemingly irrelevant, everyday objects.
