Art Title: "step on a crack, break
your mother's back"
Description: assemblages with manipulated
digital prints, wood, paper, gesso
"step on a crack, break your mother's back" the nursery rhyme
warns. and no one really wants to step on the cracks. no one really
wants the responsibility or the consequence.
and what if all those cracks
connected? what if there was a giant cosmic design? what if the design
was that of a grand and complicated labyrinth for all humankind? a labyrinth
guiding and leading, as labyrinths do. what if its complication was only
in its cracked detail and its complete overall design was the ultimate
in simplicity? after all, unlike
the maze, a labyrinth has no false leads. and what if we all miss that
simplicity every day in a world of cracked pavement? paving meant
for erasing, but only growing crack by crack. more vital day by day,
stepped on or not.
what if you really did break your mother's back?
