Having fun with art history -

"Alberto's Perceived Memory of a Cube"
manipulated digital drawing by Mick Mather
So sorry to post and rush off again today ... I'm not really here, but at a meeting. The best possible kind, however, with old friends over cocktails. Either way, today's post has its roots in Alberto Giacometti, surrealism, the cubists, life drawing vs. drawing from memory and perceived realism. What I love about him was his ability early on, and all through his career, to think outside the box up to and including throwing away the box in order to invent his own way.

Cubes are good pets, you don't have to go out with them early in the morning, they eat little and they don't mind being alone the whole day. They don't become more edgy...
