A repost, and one of note. Why do we make art? This is from salvaged materials, and demonstrates how art can aid in healing.



ANTI-MASS by Cornelia Parker

Here I am standing in front of Cornelia Parker’s gravity-defying sculpture called Anti-Mass at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. It was constructed from the remains (wood charcoal, nails and wire) of a Southern Black Baptist Church destroyed by arsonists. Evoking the spirit of the lost church and congregation even as it suggests the temporary nature of physical things, it testifies to the triumph of creativity over violence.

I am Daryl-Ann Hurst, (also using Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst), an artist and writer, who is also interested in antiques, travel and the outdoors. I am hoping to use this blog to meld all of the interests. I was born and raised in California, have a BA in art, have been published in the New England Antiques Journal and have photography on the Gulf of Maine's website. I have shown paintings and prints nationally since 1978.
