Jenny Holzer, "For SAAM," 2007, a time-based media sculpture comprised of vertical strands of white LEDs that reveal different text and patterns over a 24 hour cycle, located at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.
Elana Herzog. NY based installation artist and sculptor. She staples found textiles to the walls - parts of fabric and staples then removed and sometime reapplied, leaving a residue of shredded fabric and perforated wall surface. Piece shown as part of Dewarped and Unweft - a survey of Elana's work from 1993 to 2009 - at Daum Museum of Contemporary Art Sedalia, Missouri. These are beautiful but not sure how I feel about the destruction of someone else's work that this involves.
The art of Alphonse Mucha has inspired me over and over for years. Seeing an incredible exhibition of original works at the North Carolina Museum of Art in 1999 was the game changer in my experiencing his works.
