Have you ever been the Norton-Simon Museum in Pasadena? They’ve got Van Goghs and Matisses! Although oil paintings are very pleasing to the eye, my favorite part is the Asian art. I think I love the Norton-Simon collection of Asian art so much because a lot of it looks like jewelry. I fully support wearable art though I cannot actually wear those gorgeous, ancient pieces, I can wear them with my eyes.
Needless to say my nine-year-old wasn’t entirely thrilled with spending much time in the museum but my plan is to expose her to these things and places so once day she will be subconsciously drawn toward art. I wouldn’t say I have an addiction to art, but I am addicted to beauty (and much art is just so beautiful even if a piece is insignificant). So here I am drunk on art, high on life, and in love with the Norton-Simon.
