Giacometti

Went to see Giacometti yesterday…found it very enlightening. Need…(want) to go again. Didn’t quite see as much as I’d want to…need more time! It was….expansive…(the only word that fits right now). So much work!!!! Couldn’t take photos so all I could do was sketch…which is a good thing. Giacometti’s work invites closer inspection and nudges you towards a sketch pad! His sculptures draw you in!!!

I love the looseness (albeit possibly contrived…I don’t know)…you can sense both urgency and restraint in his work. It’s fluid. No overthinking…yet overthinking at the same time. It’s very contradictory and makes you ‘see’ by encouraging closer scrutiny.
