Fine Art Friday (I remembered, Donna!)

| | Comments (1)

I'm going to surprise everyone who knows me with the pick for this week, because it is a piece from the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, a place that I have roundly bashed right here on this blog. But for all the trash that the building contains, there are a few (and I will say a VERY few) things there that delight my soul. Here is one of them:

Book with Wings
Anselm Kiefer

This is actually a fairly terrible picture of the sculpture, and I'll look to see if I can find a better one. It is startlingly haunting when you come upon it in the center of one of the spaces in the museum.

Anyway, I like it because it captures EXACTLY how I feel about books and reading.....


You simply must see this! It made me laugh out loud!


You can see more of this HERE.


When Kiefer is good, he is very good. When he isn't he is still interesting. I find myself liking more and more of his art, even though I used to be quite resistant to it.
