During 2011 I am posting images of things from the natural world that inspire or inform my art. My installations and sculptures are viewable at www.ryksenn.com.

August 30, 2011 Appreciation
When you love an art object and then you learn about the how it is crafted, your appreciation for the artist increases exponentially. The Tacoma Art Museum had a great lecture about the history and process of creating Pendleton trade blankets this past Saturday. The blankets are part of the Chihuly exhibit in TAM's largest gallery. The lecture raised issues about globalization, market research, and the appropriation of cultural iconography.
