Art for me is a way of expressing yourself and showing others your emotions. An artist has the ability to take anything from a song, a sculpture and take it apart, then reform them into something completely different. The most important thing to understand is that art does not have to be appreciated, it can be considered discreditable as long as the public recognizes it as art.

I found this piece of art on the second floor of Thomas Hunter. Ted Berrigan was an American poet. What’s interesting is that he used to teach at the St. marks poetry project. He was the author of 20 books.

It’s interesting how the artist decided to paint him small, then a little bigger and finally bigger not only does it looks like it growing but it seems like ted is getting older in the painting. Maybe the artist is trying to say that it takes steps and time to achieve what your goal.
