Sculptor, JASON de CAIRES TAYLOR continues to inspire

I don´t believe that art can exist in isolation. Da Vinci´s Mona Lisa surely speaks in some way, even smiles in some way, to characters in crayon-drawings by five year olds, and the stone horses of The Rising Tide discuss the state of the world with all who ever stop to look at them, in different light and waterscape depending on the time of the day. The work itself surely engages in conversation, even if not in agreement, with the Another Place exhibition / installation placed on the Crosby coastline in the UK by Antony Gormley.

WHAT IS GOOD ART? WHAT GOOD IS ART?

Of course, it is not only poetry that academics might have us measure to within an inch of its life.

ART CREATES ITS OWN SPACE

Sigrid´ ´s works were propped up against the wall or laid on desk tops but they stood up to be counted, too, and they shouted round corners. They created their own space. They made themselves seen and heard.
