Wow! That was very interesting and very moving and extremely significant in these unusual times. We actually did have a fire and were able to save some of our art. Thank goodness, because they are such an important part of our LIFE! Thank you Kathan. I enjoy all the eggs! robin
this "egg" was excellent. poignant and moving. as an artist i marvel when fellow artists destroy their work; but it is also something that i tend to admire as it clearly serves a purpose in their practice. me, i'm a bit of a hoarder. i rework awkward material until i'm content with it. but the notion that some one else would throw away a work of art is deeply saddening for precisely the reasons that you cite through Faulkner. art is an emotive, slow burning thing and as Faulkner suggests; always available to breathe before its next admirer. of course, art that is destroyed with intent, political or otherwise, lives a separate life that has martyred potential, but that is not my concern. your piece speaks to art that is left behind, abandoned, killed somehow. the saddest kind of all.
