Leonardo Drew lecture at Colby last night
Leonardo Drew is my current favorite living artist! His lecture last night at Colby was engaging, funny, informative. Though I knew his work he of course added to the wonderful nature of it by referring to many pieces as "monstrosities" (which they are!) and telling stories of their origin in the studio and his life as an artist. He was down to earth, friendly and not in the least arrogant, though his reknown would suggest that he could be full of himself. Instead, he is full of his art, and his rich life as an artist. I could have listened to him talk and tell stories for many hours. Bart and I were usually the first to burst out laughing before others joined in. Just ordered the book "Existed" from Amazon. Can't wait for it to arrive.
