There's a story in this piece, but I am not sure what it is. Tonight I created this piece and then showed it to my partner. "What's happening here?" I asked, pointing to the collage. "It looks like the creature is going to eat the rooster," he said. "Interesting," I said, "the creature doesn't look mean...or hungry to me. I think maybe he's going to pet the rooster." We both shrugged our shoulders and kept staring at the story in front of us.
Often I create an art piece and don't know what story I am telling. It's as if my intellectual mind hasn't caught up with my creative impulses. So, just as I asked my partner tonight, I ask you what do you think is happening in this piece? Observations, stories, and poems welcome.
