“All Children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Pablo Picasso.
A contemporary sculpture elicits different impressions from different individuals. One person sees an animal, another sees a sail boat, and yet another individual could see a sunset. And why does that sculpture need to represent anything anyway? Why not a feeling, an emotion, a memory? If that contemporary sculpture elicits a feeling, an emotion or a memory (good or bad), then the sculptor has succeeded!
“It took me 4 years to paint like Rapheal, but a lifetime to paint like a child” Pablo Picasso
