Painting The Wind

While windmills have been an outdoor fixture for centuries, they’ve never really gotten their ‘day in the sun’ so to speak. These poor suckers have been mere wallflowers in the landscape, forced to recede into the background like shrinking violets. Well, now it’s their time to shine withHorst Glasker’s Aero Art instillation. Brightly colored wind turbines shellacked in day-glow yellow and lime green pop on the landscape, appearing as bright sculptural objects to be reckoned with.  “These big, colorful generators change attitudes, for they will generate not only power but an ‘emotional mantle’ and an enormously positive acceptance in those who live or work near them.”
