I was contacted by several people about the pieces I uploaded on the FAAN site last fall. I thought it was such an amazing idea to have a place to share older work with a wider audience. I am extremely happy to have my work in the homes of all my fantastic adoptees. This piece now lives in Paris, where I have very fond memories of a year I lived there while in my 20's.
This is the email I recieved from Elise last september:
I would really like to adopt this art work. I think it is completely wonderful. My best friend (who is not connected to the art world at all) told me the other day that she was totally in love with this series of three pieces. I wanted to encourage her to try and adopt one but for some reason she hasnt. It might sound a little strange but I think maybe she is a bit scared to try. Perhaps if you are not used to being in contact with art the idea of this site is a little intimidating. So I am writing this on her behalf.
We used to live together in Paris a couple of years ago. However I moved away (I have since moved back to Paris) and then she moved to the most wondeful little house just outside the city with her boyfriend. Last February she split up with this love of her life unfortunately and moved to a pretty small studio right near the bar where she works. Its nice but very different from the last place and I think this piece would bring a ray of sunshine into the place (and life...).
I dont want to sound too cheesy but I believe 100 per cent in the power of art to do so many things. From the most basic like being esthetically pleasing to the complicated of changing lives, inspiring and giving direction. Im not entirely sure how this work will affect her, except of course making her really happy.
I absolutely love this work - its' shiny, beautiful reflectiveness and the simplicity of the design.
I'm not sure which one she liked the best, so perhaps you can choose which one you think would best suit the profile.
Let me know what you think.
Im sure you have had loads of letters so thanks very much for reading this one,
