Seeing What you See in Stella ('Great Jones Street')
Oil on Wood
After days of distraction from political upheaval, it is a relief to return to the world of Art. Frank Stella's Retrospective at the De Young Museum is still with me. And his statement, "What you see is what you see" is one of my favorite statements by a painter about his art. It is also applicable to current events. Our eyes are open, and what we see is what we see. Don't look away.
