Metaphrasty at work. Can you figure out how many genres are combined in this piece that appears in a plastic table display, ripe for art theft?

Somebody at the restaurant broke the glass over one of my paintings. The owner took it to a gallery for repair, but I've not seen the thing since.

Oh, well.


  1. I absolutely love this piece! sometimes people just need a little encouragement, and then wonderful things can happen. makes me think printing a bunch of them on cardstock (postcard size) and distributing them everywhere in hopes they got taken and ACTED upon would be a killer good project. thanks for showing it, and planting yet more seeds.

  2. For me, successful art enables one person to make a gesture - something I consider 'dance' - to spend time - in response to it.

    The trick is to have the art invite - leave room for - that gesture.

    A different kind of collaboration.


Whoa. Hey. Hi. Talk to me.
