ANIMATING THE SILENCE OF NATURE IN VINTAGE POSTERS and GRAPHIC ART

http://www.idesirevintageposters.com/artistic-magazines-womans-home-companion-february-1932.html

We tend to regard the presence of nature being largely passive, a stage upon which humankind acts and exploits. However, there is another way to see this matter, and our vintage poster and graphic blog today wants to suggest its fascination.

Of course hurricanes, wildfires and blizzards can be very persuasive. But beyond such drama, there is a quiet, constant flow by way of completing the way we realize our days. Our taking up seemingly inert structures has in fact a dovetailing of people and the usually ignored input around us. Perception is more than one-way.

Our first instance of this rendezvous employs allegory to suggest the mysterious interplay between beast and human. Both sides of the equation. The sun, the skies and the trees show a wealth of cogent beauty. That large container being held implies the bounty of such an embrace.

Close relatives–the falling leaves, the soaring waves; and, one’s waves of daring, deftness and love.
