Modern play magazine interview and more

Hi everyone,

The week has started with good news. Part of my family is here and they are sharing with us all our daily moments. All together we have taken Mateo to the kinderkrippe. It was nice to show the little house to granny and cousin but staying there while all have fun at home was a bit hard so Mateo has cried a bit this morning.

 

Then I have browsed a bit on internet to read the interview Modern Play magazine made some weeks ago. It's really nice to read about your life and your work in an interesting magazine, it makes me feel happy to share my feelings and interests with such an interesting people as Dunia Barrera. Here you have a nice reading for a grey Monday!

 

Enjoy your day and have a creative Monday!!!



Sculptor Elizabeth Catlett

Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012) was an African-American graphic artist and sculptor. Along her long career, spanning more than 70 years, she created sculptures that celebrate the heroic strength and endurance of African-American and Mexican working-class women. Her work is a mixture of abstract and figurative in the modernist tradition with simple, clear shapes. She worked in wood, stone, bronze or clay.  The main purpose of her work is to convey social messages rather than pure aesthetics and that's way I love her. Her work talked about themes such as social injustice, human codition, women or motherhood. Her hardy laborers and mothers radiate power and calm at the same time.
