April serves as an intermediary month, particularly weather wise.  Teasing summer with a select few days of sunshine and incurring fear with random outbursts of rain and snow, this month’s post embodies April’s transitory qualities through visual depictions of floating.  Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde-filled tanks of preserved bodies of farm animals are the most iconic floating image.

Likewise, modern photographs of Palm Spring’s poolsides capture the fleeting moments of being-somewhat in action, but no where to go. These tense moments of leisure (if there can be such a thing) perhaps denotes modern unease with downtime. FADA’s inventory of floating objects-or depictions of floating people-anticipate the summer months, but also the slight shifts as seasons transition.

Just as we float-artists have also been able to free their works from general perspective guidelines-allowing shapes and colors to float amongst the undefined background. FADA’s inventory-showing one suspended from the canvas, or in a body of liquid-exude the trappings of floating-implying one’s next move.
