Context is important. It can be the difference between an insult and a joke. It can warp the perception of an event. I have been thinking a lot about context, given the tense mood in society right now. Pictures are misused, facts are misconstrued.
I like patterns, shapes, and design. I like simple geometric paintings from Mondrian, I like the cubists‘ works, and I like Escher, whose works deal with complicated, paradoxical patterns. If you don’t know these artists/movements, I suggest looking them up – they are a treat!
