believing

 
 NOT that the art object is inherently significant
 
 meaningful or beautiful
 
 BUT THAT the value
 and meaning of art is actively constructed
 
 by the viewer.
 (Marcel Duchamp's belief)

  1. brings to mind the wise words of Lao Tsu from the Tao Te Ching

    Thirty spokes share the wheel's hub;
    It is the center hole that makes it useful.
    Shape clay into a vessel;
    It is the space within which makes it useful.
    Therefore profit comes from what is there;
    Usefulness from what is not there.

  2. I'm guessing this is a new piece Judy - it is so beautiful. Very calming, both the colour and the stitching, I love it!

    1. Yes, I have been doing a little stitching over the summer. Lots of time in the sun and water though, and huge lovely times with the grand-kids and the regular-kids. I haven't got a title for this piece yet, but the emptiness in that drawn circle is so full of emotion for me - still figuring out why and what to call the quilt. Thanks for commenting xo

  3. I believe in you, Judy. I love your work, your words, your spirit . . . . I easily, and happily, construct meaning when I see your work.

    1. I'm not sure what the work means, I'm not sure what this post means, but everything is washed by sunlight, and time goes by so quickly and we had a birthday party on the deck and everything is beautiul. xoxo
