A ONE-WOMAN SHOW

International Artist - - Important Principles Of Art -

Look at this non-ob­jec­tive im­age. I want you to ob­serve it with in­ten­sity. In fact, go over it bit by bit. Wit­ness not a false line or shape within. Yes, I’m show­ing it here, de­scrib­ing it to you be­cause it has me mes­mer­ized. I go over and over it and see some­thing new each time. You’re won­der­ing what is go­ing on with me. Have I be­come so taken by my­self that I can do no wrong ar­tis­ti­cally? And if so, why would I bur­den you with such a tow­er­ing ego?

Well, it’s not what you think. I didn’t do this piece but have had it for quite some time. It’s a com­bi­na­tion of man­made and Mother Na­ture. It was a park sign that

I saw years ago. A sign that slowly de­te­ri­o­rated, baked by the hot Ari­zona sun. Lit­tle by lit­tle, it be­gan to buckle and crack. Un­til fi­nally it be­came the ab­stract im­age you see. But again, see what na­ture has left us; a per­fect piece of con­tem­po­rary art. There’s not a speck in it that isn’t in­ter­est­ing. Un­con­trived. To­tally and ut­terly cre­ative. An­other grand work of Mother Na­ture!
