I simply adore a summer’s day stroll through a fine museum or boutique gallery, don’t you? It is my sincerest belief, dearest readers, that the world is a better place in large part because there are so many pretty pictures in it…and paintings and sculptures and illustrations etc. etc. Oh, I could go on!
But step up and take a look my lovelies – at the fine creations of the talented Miss Sarah Sze.
Miss Sze is a young lady, but already world renown, having won a slew of prizes and grants and such. Her work is displayed all over the world, in high falutin’ collections everywhere – from The Whitney to Museum of Modern Art to the prestigious Walker Art Center.
Miss Sze’s absolutely amazing artwork seems to come from another dimension – a land of wild and witty, creativity. It is a place where space and color are slightly skewed and tweaked and most definitely, dreamlike.
Her pieces straddle the lines of architecture and painting and sculpture and transform everyday objects into something sublime and lovely. Cotton balls and tea bags, water bottles and step ladders, light bulbs and electric fans, all these are put to good use, evolving from practical things into elegant and utterly engaging art.
She is delightfully prolific and utterly unbridled by silly things like weight or genre. In Sze’s whimsical world, objects poke from the ceiling or spiral out and up into the air or bend or fly or defy that pesky law of gravity – all in a wonderfully unexpected manner.
