I am forever being dragged into the backyard to admire a collection of house hold odds and bods stacked on top of each other, tied or unfortunately sometimes nailed together because "Artist people sometimes make sculptures out of found objects you know"
His lunch has also come under the influence of his artistic enthusiasm and I’m quite often being called up to the table by the words "Look I made a Henri Matisse painting with my sandwich" He is a big fan of Matisse, and at this age preferring the paper collages to any naked ladies.
His favourite is Icarus and I just have to share a critique of the artwork that I recently over heard between Eli and Lilly
Eli: "I like this one, in this one he is falling"
Lilly: "No he’s not, he’s dying"
Eli: "NO falling!"
Eli: "No falling! because he would only be dying when he hits the ground"
Isn’t art appreciation wonderful.
I thought I’d leave you with a sample of his latest photography works because like Eli says "You have to look because these are artworks too."
