Hey, there! The thing that most excited me on a recent visit to The Whitney Museum of American Art, was the Art-O-Mat in the gift shop. And, guess what? I'm now the proud owner of a KT Goodlove wood block. But, what does it mean? Everyone I show it to has a different interpretation. What's yours?
Hi!Thanks very much for leaving the comment, Tamsen!Since the Asian script is an element by Kettle, I don't know what it says (or even if it is going in the right direction...tee hee.)For my own interpretation, I quite often find myself thinking of something new every time I look back at one of my collages. I generally don't have anything in mind when I make them -- hence the playful "Fraught with Meaning" name of my blog -- because oftentimes folks take art so seriously and read so much into it.I LOVE Art-o-mat because it is a more lighthearted take on art.Having said all of that, looking at the block right now, I think my story is that the dog man is at work and is kinda bewildered to have come upon a little toast man wandering the hallway rambling on in some unrecognizable dialect.
Yes...it is so amusing to me that my Art-o stuff is "in the Whitney". They order "Animal People" regularly, too.
Send more KT Goodloves!!:-)~artomatcarol :-)
