Les Puces

© Nelly Charbonneaux

These two pictures were taken somewhere in the Paris flea market porte de Clignancourt. They both look like art work, but actually the left one is a detail of a rusted pillar (not a painting!), and the one the right is a bunch of old stacked radiators (not a sculpture!). They both have someything in common. First the color harmony, and second something random about them. Nature and weather did their work on the first and some employees of the antique dealer must have stacked the radiators as well as possible, not thinking about making a work of art. My point is there is something about random accidents which can be most interesting in art and also design.
