I recently saw the Keith Haring exhibit in Brooklyn, NYC. I was amazed at the thought
he put into the symbols and shapes he uses in his work. He also felt so strongly that all
art did not belong in galleries.
Here are two Haring quotes: “Nothing is important…so everything is important.”
and “Why should a painter work if he is not transformed by his own painting.”
I am looking forward to lots more time to do art and see how I am transformed now that I will be retired.
Haring inspired me to use a dog symbol and to explore outlines.
Below is a Haring inspired piece “Red Dog”.
