My layers come from pieces of art by the amazing contemporary artist; Tara Dovovan, born in New York 1969 and working out of Brooklyn.
I had never heard about her before I visit Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark – in the beginning of July this year together with my friend Iris. My post about my visit: a contemporary day in Denmark.
Tara just blow the socks of me – with every piece in her show – the amount of work that have gone into every piece was just mind-blowing. She only uses every day materials.
The first photo of layers is from her piece; Bluffs from 2005 – where she has glued small clear plastic buttons on each other layer after layer.
Second piece has the title “Untitled”, 2008 and made of polyester film.
She also showed a wall made from translucent plastic drinking straws – the Haze, but it was impossible for me to catch the greatness in that piece with my little camera – layer on layer with drinking straws.
Please watch the little video made by Louisiana about her work and you will get a better understaning of the greatness of her work.
“Without art, the crudeness of reality
would make the world unbearable.”
George Bernard Shaw
