Art Object: Shoes, Relics of long Voyages by IZ MAGLOW

Shoe Art Objects, Relics of long Voyages by Iz Maglow

 

[ Shoe Relics ]

 

To keep some nice memories for "old companions of long voyages" alive German Art Artist Iz Maglow created these collection of artistic shoe objects in the early eighties.

Instead of descriptions or short comments, Iz Maglow illustrated all shoe relics below with short memories that accompanied these relics, fragmented quotations taken from songs from "the Beatles".

I hope this will rejoices all Beatles fans as well as the creators themselves.
Not for one moment there was an intention to hurt anyone by combining these different arts.

... stepping out this
old brown shoe - baby
I'm in love with you ...

 

 
... I'm listen for
your footsteps coming
up the drive,
listen for your footsteps,
but they don't arrive ...

 

 
... she said she'd always been a dancer,
she worked at fifteen clubs a day
and though she thought
I knew the answer,
well, I knew
but I could not say ...

 

 
... when I'm walking
besides her,
people tell me
I'm lucky ...

... I'm looking through you, where did you go?
I thought I knew you, what don't I know?
you don't look different, but you have changed.
I'm looking through you, you are not the same. ...
 

 

... don't pass me by
don't make me cry
don't make blue
'cause you know darling I only love you ...

... I've just seen a face
I can't forget
the time or place
where we just met, ...

 

 
... but the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down
and the eyes in his head
see the world spinning 'round ...

 

 
... sitting here wandering,
a matchbox hole in
my clothes,
I ain't got no matches,
but I sure got
a long way to go ...
