Pieces that offer us a little treat upon closer inspection.
I had a studio visit once with an aloof visiting artist. After a quick lap around my studio he said to me “where’s my cookie?”
According to this not-super-nice man, the artist’s obligation is to offer visual cookies to the viewer for a job well done, a reward system for looking so to speak. For the record, I do not agree with this idea, but clearly something stuck.
Since then, I find myself at times getting lost in the details of pieces and thinking about cookies. With this in mind, I wanted to curate a collection that rewards us for looking a little more closely. Enjoy!
