|Alberto Giacometti, “Head of Diego on ‘La Psychanalyse'”|
York Studio School's exhibit of Alberto Giacometti's drawings. I've always enjoyed Giacometti's works. They are so dense, yet clear. Once, when touring a cave and observing the stalagmites, I commented on their Giacometti-like appearance. A man near me misunderstood, laughed and said to his wife, "she thinks they look like chocolate bunnies." I guess not all cave visitors are culturally literate. Now, every time I see a Giacometti, I say, "Look. There is a chocolate bunnie." There is a quote from Giacometti, “The more one works on a picture the more impossible it becomes to finish it.” that I relate to. This phenomenon is becoming self evident with Lilacs. More of Giacometti's work can be seen at Artsy.
