Went up to Sacramento to drop off work for this years KVIE art fundraiser and found myself standing in front of this amazing piece by Steven Kaltenbach at the Crocker Art Museum.
I visually fell into this work. It's beautiful from a distance, but mind numbing when you walk up closer and see that it's made of a complex repeating pattern that's used like pixels.
I would love a chance to just sit in front of it for a long spell!

Took the opportunity to hunt out Dan Finnegan's works that are in a special collection there too. He was set in a room along side the Hamadas, the Bernard Leechs and all the other greats... very cool Dan!

It was humbling to see so much great work.
I can't help but start using works like these as a ruler to measure what I make against.
Rulers of this type usually are masochistic exercises, it's all apples and oranges, but it was still fun to imagine what my work would look like sitting in a line up like that.

I'm happy realizing that I've become comfortable being who I am.
