Claes Oldenburg

31 03 2014

You can’t help but smile, maybe laugh, when you see Oldenburg’s work. There is the ‘how dare he’ reaction. Or ‘is it art’ question. I myself have no idea how to react. Except that as you drive almost anywhere in North America (and perhaps elsewhere) you see these giant versions of smaller objects. Outside Detroit, on the way west, there is a giant tire. Outside Leamington Ontario, there is I believe a giant tomato. If you travel north of Toronto towards Huntsville, there is a giant Adirondack chair.

Is it all art? Or is it just Oldenburg’s work? Hardly seems fair.

Kamil Vojnar

There isn’t much information on Vojnar. His work has this wispy spiritual quality to it. Or maybe its just years of brown outs. I always find it strange to see how many artists who grew up behind the Iron Curtain have surreal work that deals in many ways in flight. Or escape.

Bogdan is an interesting artist. His work is lovely to look at. The surreal quality of his collage work in echoed in his straight photographs.
