Haring in motion

After a thorough warm up with the Picassos at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, better known as the LACMA, a lot of the modern and contemporary art was really breathing with me. So, when I saw this Keith Haring painting for the first time in person, this I saw:

This Haring moved as first microbiology: chromosomes and blood cells were rotating about interacting in a sort of dance with another. Then it began to hit closer to home by revealing itself sociologically: grids and buildings of city streets from birds-eye view. Before the painting finally transitioned closest to home and into a dense and unbreaking crowd of people on city streets moving amongst one another.

The bright colors no doubt helped produce this vibrant energy.

I prefer seeing art in motion, so I often move around while I’m viewing a piece. I suppose it aids physical perspective and helps me empathize with the movement a painter makes while they create their piece.

Whatever it is, it helps me bring the artwork to life, and I think this is why it is so important to see artwork in person.
