I web-stumbled across The Sneeze by Dana Schutz several (many? meveral?) years ago and feel that it belongs in the first few posts of this bloggity boo. It’s one of those images that I go back to on at least a bi-monthly basis because it bottles a moment in time and tosses it to you, the unsuspecting observer, with a casual flick of the wrist.
My personal collision with this work came at a time when I was just beginning to discover my interest in expression of the temporal in art and architecture. This piece slaps (sneezes?) one right in the face with a discussion about time, a dynamic event. I also feel a bit voyueristic, sneeking a peek at this poor girl at the moment of her uncontrollable explosion.
More on Dana Schutz as I reacquaint myself with her updated body of work. Comments on Frank the castaway and the series on Missing Pieces surely to follow.
