If you truly know me then you know that I am a lover of all forms of ART. It is something about the visual whether its paintings, sculptures, dance, fashion or music that shares an emotional power or expression. Art allows you to create your own imagination behind the visual that expresses your ideas and or feelings which is what I took away from the KAWS exhibit this past weekend.
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth recently showcased the legendary ,Brian Donnelly also known as KAWS, WHERE THE END STARTS collection. The exhibit featured key paintings, sculptures, drawings, toys, and street art interventions from KAWS himself. The purpose of this exhibit was to share KAWS’s prolific career in-depth, revealing critical aspects of his formal, conceptual, and collaborative developments over the last twenty years.
Let me share my story line I created from my visit through the KAWS sculpture exhibit.
THE STAGES OF LIFE
-In life we go through emotional stages that others will never understand. –
-Our emotions become so loud that we don’t want to hear or see anything that can provoke an expression or action we will soon regret.-
-We tend to find other ways to remove these emotions which may not be the best resolution.-
-Friends and or family members try to step in and comfort us with kind words.-
-They also let us know that they are there for us with nice gestures. However…..-
-In the end we always end right back where we started ALONE with our emotions kept inside trying to figure out a way to remove the pain.-
What did you receive from each sculpture KAWS has created? Everyone has a different viewpoint so please feel free to share below.
