At first I struggled with the subject – and I was letting it go for this week, but this evening during my dinner I got it.
Art that really is a work of art,TARA DONOVAN‘s fantastic pieces. She uses a variety of everyday materials such as drinking straws, nails and buttons for her art – she had a full wall called “Haze” made out drinking straws or her big cubs – one of toothpicks and one of basting pins, glued together one by one.
I tried to capture her cubs, but photographing wasn’t allowed and I was told of by the guard. I manage to get some of her art caught with my camera. I wish my photo would do her art more justice. JUST AMAZING!!!!!!
The my first thought when I saw her art was – that she can’t have much of a sex life, when so much works goes into her art. Just to glue all those toothpicks one by one – into a big cub. Or the pins even worst.
I never heard about Tara until I met her art at “Louisiana Museum of Modern Art” in Humlebæk, Denmark – in July last year. Her art totally blow the socks of me – piece after piece just amazed me.
