Contemporary Art


The ASU Art Museum is not a huge and sprawling museum so it is quite accessible and can be explored in an hour or two.  I found some very inspiring and thought provoking works inside.  This piece is called "The House That Roxanne Built" by Roxanne Swentzell of Santa Fe New Mexico.  It definitely has a Native American feel to it.


This piece didn't catch my eye at first but, upon closer inspection, I found it fascinating.  It's called "The Re-Arrangement" by Kim Dickey of Boulder Colorado.





























You have to get in really close to see the faces, eyes and beaks peeking out from various locations.  You can actually see a bird's beak popping out on the right side in the full view of it above and in this photo we have what looks like a dog peeking out.


On the other side, another animal is hiding in the among to leaves and petals.  It's one of those pieces that you really have to look at to see what it's all about.

Both pieces are very nice. The second one is very creative and I like seeing the dog's face and the bird's beak.
