Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I’ve been working day and night on the finishing touches for the show, mainly simplifying things, inspired by the space and the quality of the work by Jennifer, Sunny, and Kyung Yung (sp?), who work at Crossing Art.
You’d think the sad irony would be that the more your work, the less chance of people recognizing it. But you don’t have to worry about that.
Most importantly, enjoying the work makes it its own reward.
Secondarily, people who you want to recognize the work required for simplicity will. They’ve done it too. Others will simply enjoy the simplicity and you can enjoy that you’ve created something they’ll enjoy more.
Anyway, it’s about 9am Saturday morning. I’m about to head in to the gallery for finishing touches — to simplify.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all there at 3pm. The details again:
