A piece by Ledelle Moe, Collapse I, in the North Carolina Museum sculpture park. Deteriorating concrete and steel. Children were climbing all over it with parents looking on. Sign says clearly, Do Not Climb. A young Russian woman climbed it and stood at highest point. When I told her she wasn’t supposed to climb on it, her boyfriend said that they were forgetting that they were in America. When I asked what that was supposed to mean, he said, you’re not permitted to climb things here. I thought, where in Europe or Russia do people climb on sculpture?
Anyway, it was a popular photo op spot. Lots of distractions which I did not mind at all. Only the time I spent on it. The equation seems to be: The less time I spend on a drawing or watercolor, the more I like it.
