Sculpture quick sketch
I was looking at the Xugu paintings again at the museum tonight (how I'll miss them when they come down next month!) -- and I realized that what I especially like about them ----- is also what I like about this sculpture quick-sketch that Sterett-Gittings Kelsey sent me a few days ago.
Sterett and Xugu were born about 10,000 miles and 100 years apart -- but both of them spent their lives mastering a specific visual language -- so in their maturity, everything just seems to come so easy for them.
Like an impulsive gesture - that is instantly fit into a congenial space
How many plum trees has Xugu painted ? How many dancers has Sterett modeled ?
"With wanton heed, and giddy cunning, The melting voice through mazes running; Untwisting all the chains that tie The hidden soul of harmony"
