The young are always right

When Louise Bourgeois was in her mid twenties, she left home to study art in Paris.
Last September, our daughter April left Canada so that she could study art in FINLAND.

 Louise Bourgeois

Please click here to view the short video that features April at the Toronto opening of Defining Moments, an exhibit of young Canadian artists. (The top two images are from he disappeared into complete silence, a portfolio of engravings and parables by Louise Bourgeois when she was in her early 30's.)

Finland might be a good place for art. I was there 3x in my younger years. I met some very genuine and individual people, living connected with nature, thus deep thinkers and not too talkative. Wonder if you daughter experiences something similar.

Loving the boat, the sails, the constellation - what FUN they are! They made me smile, and a few of the sculpture/constellation pieces made me chuckle. And April? Well, she's just as beautiful as the art she created.

I love April's piece "Constellation". So stark, but so evocative. What a wonderful opportunity to study in Finland. I hope we see more.
