Anyone knows making it big in the art world means challenging people’s views of art and making complicated, ponderous pieces. It can’t be accessible to children.
I guess I can’t to anything right. I explore and draw out wonder, curiosity, amazement, and fascination — the emotions of scientists. And children. My four-year-old niece came to the gallery today to see the installation in progress. She came with my sister (her mother) and my father.
Here are a few pictures of her. She loved running past the display and telling my sister where to walk her around when being carried. Tomorrow I expect people to move around a lot too and to watch each other moving. It’s fun. You’ll smile.
Don’t tell people in the art world you enjoyed the art. You’ll ruin my chances with them.
(As usual, my phone was my crappy cell phone, so sorry about the picture quality)
I missed the best parts of her running around and, of course, the camera can’t capture squeals of joy.
