pucker

 

A puckering inwards and outwards, reminiscent of other cellular forms in the animal-human body for the extraordinary cycle of in and out, fuel and waste.

I was reminded of one of the best things i saw last year – Richard Hamilton’s self-curated Shit and Flowers, an exhibition of his own work from the 1970s.

Hamilton’s work is far more interesting and complex in its questions around advertising, painting and the image than this rather literal connection.  But I cite it as I’m continually drawn to art where my gaze and my mind, in looking at a flower, is set up against other physical and cultural cycles; I need work like Hamilton’s.
