Moving Van Gogh

Van Gogh was really one of the first artists who captured my attention. I saw an exhibit of his work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) long before the Urban Light street light piece or the Levitated Mass.

I was drawn to Van Gogh’s use of color and line. I connected to his interpretation of the world even though I had never seen his world and he had not seen mine. How is it that a teenager in 1998 could be so captivated by work 100 + years before she existed? I even replicated his famed Starry Night painting and painted it onto the back of my lawn chair. I wish I had a photo of that. But it was long before phone cameras.

 

Either way– watch this video takes his whimsical work and bring them into the modern era in a new way. Enjoy 🙂
