Chronoglyph Tokyo Urban Rhapsody II Score for a Symphony Visually: I’m totally enthralled by Julie Mehretu’s giant canvases. Conceptually: The ideas behind and within the works of Matthew Ritchie are totally inspiring, ambitious and all encompassing. Dead: Michelangelo. Everyone knows about this master, you could say everything that could be said has been said. What I know is that I’ll never have the right words to express the impact that his powerful work has had on me personally. What I recommend is that every artist should become intimately familiar with his biography. He lived a turbulent life, rose above it all and elevated art beyond a craft. Not to mention, his art extended to and bridged the gaps between sculpture, drawing, architecture, painting and poetry. He’s Prometheus, Apollo and a bit of Shakespeare all in one.
