On Sunday, I drove up to Revere to take in the annual Sand Castle Competition…As always the entries were amazing–I had to wonder how on earth (so to speak) the artists managed to build them. Especially enjoyed “Skin and Bones,”…
Artists Chihuly and El Anatsui bring to life beautiful worlds based on imagination and the seemingly-mundane.
Rather than engage in namecalling and derision, I’ll quit now –and simply thank whomever built Mr. Snowman for your neighborliness and sense of fun. You really brightened my day!
In pondering the curators’ decisions to highlight these artists, I can’t help but conclude that they’re making a statement about the current state of civilization, politics, and art. But I ask, where do we go from here?
Not only is each work beautiful and provocative in itself–but the Roni Horn show as a whole, which integrates a multitude of media and art forms, brilliantly encorporates the artist’s multiple talents and her understanding, and our own.
