Sleeping under Statues

Holly Harmon's art blog - sharing artwork and artists that move me.

Title taken from a joke by stand-up comedian Jesse Joyce, which refers to the fact that I'm doing what I love: Art History. As a result I may soon be "sleeping under statues in the park, but I'll know who made them, and that's important."

Andy Warhol. Clouds

A couple of weekends ago I went to Pittsburgh and was able to visit the Andy Warhol museum there. This was the highlight of the museum. It’s a small room that’s filled with these floating silver balloons. And I think it manages to fill most of my qualities of what makes a great work of art: 

  • ephemeral
  • creating an experience 
  • aesthetically beautiful
  • viewer interaction

This one was truly memorable. I loved it. This also explains my new profile picture.
