As I recall these golden words were spoken by Shirley Conrad, who many years ago, was a doyenne of home making. It’s a phrase that came to mind on today’s visit to the Arts District of Los Angeles to the Hauser and Wirth Galleries.
These first painting were all of a palm tree with Perspex screen in front and these screens as you can see have what looks like a colour blindness test with numbers. The galleries are really brilliant. A wonderful place to exhibit art and photography. I loved these images and there was someone there to explain that each of the Perspex screen are hand painted and the numbers and letters hand drawn. I resisted the urge to say it but heard the phrase at the back of my head: “Life’s too short…”
I was advised that the artists did get help. He needs help!
Then there’s photography
After the palm trees we took a brief look at the photography, lovely space,dull photographs. California is all about colour and in here there was none. Sorry, but I simply don’t understand it. I’m thinking of sending them some of my future work, perhaps I’ll send them a bit of exposed roll film and see if my blanks are good enough to be exhibited. Personally I found the exhibit below more interesting. Is it an exhibit or a health and safety feature? Discuss.
