Bubbles. This deviation from the works of =jvrichardson is nothing more, nothing less, than a bunch of water bubbles.

It's the sort of thing that, by itself, forms something bland and uninteresting - you don't take a bowl of water, trickle in a few drops of soap, blow bubbles in it with a straw and call that a piece of art. Yet this is is: the artist here has managed to do one thing that a lot of artists will likely try at some point, and probably fail to do; take something that by itself wakes absolutely no real fascination or brilliance, and turn it into something that just makes you stop and look - maybe even think - just for the moment.

A meaning behind it you might find if you absolutely insist on trying hard enough, but regardless of whether one or not one can actually be bothered to do so, the fact still remains that this here is something grudgingly ordinary turned into something interesting and beautiful.

And that, all by itself, is art.
