Camiseteria’s Harmony

Harmony by Guto Reliz is a gorgeous piece of art, using a more realistically rendered bird to serve as a comparison for an elaborately illustrated and decorated bird image. While one is small, even understated, and peers at the viewer with intelligent eyes, the other is an extravaganza of line and color, seeming to flow from the branch’s blossoms and possessing wings that feel like they’d have the softness of its petals. Thin splashes of paint adorn the illustrated bird like ribbons, and instead of the abrupt hook of the real bird’s beak, this one’s mouth is a long, generous curve. It’s real vs. ideal, three dimensional vs. flat, and observation vs. decoration. Both birds are all the more fascinating for how different they are to each other.
