Once again, strolling around the GLAMFA gallery, another piece of art has caught my attention. This one is just a bunch of blue lines and squares. It is very simple, yet intricate. It is called “Grid Meet Grid” by Maureen Halligan. It is pretty much self-explanatory after taking a glance at the painting that the grids are pointing towards each other, but they did not touch. They are “meeting” each other. But after looking for a while and gave it a little thoughts, I had a different perspective on the piece. It might addressees a love relationship between two people. They are the same people falling in love but an outside force has cause them to not be together. For example, Romeo and Juliet. They can meet but can’t be touched.
Or…this is just a simple painting of grids on a piece of canvas with no meaning and I am just trying too hard..
