The piece at the bottom of these three images reflects my interest in Paul Klee. (1879-1940) He was born in Switzerland and repatriated to Germany. He was also an instructor at the famed Bauhaus School of Design and Architecture. Many years ago I saw a group of his works in the Guggenheim Museum in NYC. The Guggenheim was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and to visit it is to enter a work of art containing the treasures of many other works of art. For the record, this building is designed as a spiral and the more leisurely way to see the art is to begin at the top floor and work down. (If you really want to put more efforts into the visit, start at the bottom and go up.) The Klee pieces I was so taken with were plaster impregnated gauze infused with tempera and paint. In the expereince of viewing art, I once had a design instructor that introduced me to the idea of "After Image"; the way a piece of art will stay with you, the feeling of it, the very image of it burrowing into one's subconscious - then, it coming back at unexpected times to follow you, remind you, make you think of it again. Two other pieces from this series also follow the design of pyramids and suggestion of cosmic events.
