Off White

Even though it's only in its beginning stages, there's something about this evolving sculpture by Karen Ryan called "Off White" that immediately grabbed me. Was it the wood shavings, the stained paper, or the papier mache technique? Or did it feel like another piece that I love, triggering some artistic sense memory? Perhaps it was this Johns piece. The two are hardly similar, but you know how it is, you can't control memory.

  1. That Jasper Johns piece has ALWAYS been one of my favorites!

  2. Oh, me, too. I love Jasper Johns and that particular piece is my favorite one of his.
    Sense memory...I can see why you are drawn to Karen Ryan's work-in-progress. Would love to see it when it's done.
