Complicated Viewpoints

when I observe

a work

from Picasso

or any artist


first and foremost

I always try

open my perception

to the artwork


even though

I love Picasso’s imagery

freedom, imagination, interpretation

shapes, colour


I have a distorted bias

within myself

against the man


a deep respect

for his artistic vision

  1. It’s true we can see what someone else has created completely wrong. It’s good to stand back and think a bit more about what we are looking at. I appreciate a wider group of art than I used to. I guess age helps to do that.

    And thank you again for the nomination and the mention Geo! :o)
