In the flow

My favourite days are those spent in creating.  Hours pass like minutes, and now it’s time for tea. Want a butler and a cook. This is a project based around the fascinating Joseph Cornell, who was a collector and a presenter of dreamworlds.  Self taught and caring for a poorly brother,  he never left New York.

“Somewhere in the city of New York there are four or five still-unknown objects that belong together. Once together they’ll make a work of art. That’s Cornell’s premise, his metaphysics, and his religion….- Charles Simic.

He was well regarded during his day, though he shunned the limelight, loving storytelling, film, the surreal and the simply lovely. He was a true American, doing it ‘his way’.
