Empty bowl at Duluth Art Institute is April 15th and 16th, 2013
I AM THE EMPTY BOWL.
I WAS FULL OF DISCARDED STUFF. I WAS FULL OF ALL THAT WAS THROWN AT ME. I WAS A MAGNET AND I DREW IT ALL IN.. IT IS SO HEAVY, AND SO PILED ON. IT HAS NO MEANING OR PURPOSE.
NOW I AM EMPTY. I DISCARD EVERYTHING AND I BEGIN EMPTY. I BUILD A SHIELD SO THAT TRASH WILL NOT LAND IN ME. I BUILD A SCREEN THAT ALLOWS ONLY THE FINEST PARTICLES THROUGH. I REPLACE THE MAGNET SO AS TO ATTRACT ONLY THE FINEST ELEMENTS.. I AM NEW AND EMPTY AND PURE AND CLEAN. I WILL STAY THAT WAY A WHILE.
I love playing in the mud and the trees. Snow covered land and stars sparkling above. I enjoy the plethora of diamonds that sparkle on the water and again on my snow filled hillsides. I can't decide if it's best to narrow my focus or mix it up. I have always struggled with duality. I enjoy skiing or a walk in the woods. I have an Aussie puppy and an aging Jack Russell. I love my Finnish Husband, Reijo, solitude, and God.
