What I love (Three)

Since I got my MFA in 2000 I've had seven different studios. I've hung this picture of Toni Morrison in all of them, and so it's getting a little bedraggled.

Toni Morrison just astounds me; I don't even know where to begin in telling you how. Suffice it to say she is a person I think about when I think about the worlds that may be made in art.

I also love the fact that THIS image--carried as it has been across states and places and years has taken on the character of a well-loved object--the mound of masking tape that keeps accumulating, the folds well-pressed into the paper, the specificity of the tear along the left hand side.
