Art that sings to me.

This is art. Question mark. This is art. Period. The brilliant body of work produced by Bay Area conceptual artist David Ireland (1930 -2009) pays homage to everyday life. This particular piece brings together toilet paper rolls, cleaning powder and wood furniture to create A Decade Document, Withcomet, Andcomet, Andstool (1980-90) . The SFMOMA describes it as a classical altarpiece. The type of altarpiece The Hygiene Hunter prays at every day. My altarpiece just happens to be comprised of paper towel rolls and bottles of biodegradable Ecover. My mom on the other hand is partial to the powder. Read my "Blame or thank my mother." post. Hit.
