Art: 2D Tanagrams

Nearly every child is handed a tanagram on their first day of kindergarten. From day one, we’re taught that structures are built from a series of parts and encouraged to play architect on the classroom carpet. These early associations follow us through life and are a reminder that the most complex arrangements are comprised of simple building blocks. This windowsill scene, shot by the talented photographer, The Selby, captures this playful notion as he follows Natalie Wood, a Sydney-based fashion designer around her home. Striping these structures of their volume, Jonathan Runcio uses basic palettes and tonal shapes to convey depth and movement on a 2D surface. The results are stunning and a reminder that life’s continually an asymmetrical balancing act.
