christo and jeanne-claude

6 11 2011

My neighbour used to wrap his bushes in barley bags. During the winter, with the snow on them, they would take strange shapes. Reminding me of sculptures by Henry Moore. The artists christo and jeanne-claude have done a similar task with their wrappings. Like snow drifts they appear on the scene and then are soon gone. So their work is more intellectual than emotional. Or at least there is no art left after they dismantle the wrappings. There is the experience of course. Still I am in a quandry what to think of such work. Pictures don’t do them justice. Like pictures of darkening clouds and the threat of storms, you have to be there. But, I’m here.

I wanted to draft you this very little observation just to thank you so much as before for all the beautiful ideas you have provided on this site. It was certainly seriously generous of you to allow openly all a few people could possibly have made available for an e-book to help with making some bucks for themselves, specifically given that you could have done it in case you desired. The creative ideas in addition worked to become fantastic way to be certain that other people have the same dreams really like my personal own to figure out lots more with regard to this matter. I am sure there are some more fun moments up front for folks who view your blog post.
