Photographer's Note

Art or what?

A few days ago I was struck by a photo of Gert with the title Art or what?

I wholeheartedly agree with his, as always, excellent commentary.
I would have immediately wanted to transfer this artwork to the Moderna Museet in Stockholm instead of MOMA in New York

Gert's photo struck me all the more because I had the same experience in Bern.
There is clearly a relationship to be discovered between my 1st photo of today and the photo of Gert. Only Gert's accidental dripping art has been replaced by a strict interplay of lines.

I would like to move this public work of art to the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, especially since the style is similar to Paul Klee's work.

Fortunately, we can decide for ourselves whether something is art or not. And I definitely want to refer to the graffiti in the second photo as art. Not so much the lower layer consisting of the traditional graffiti letters (but aesthetically applied), but the beautiful bright yellow above that makes this mural an amazingly beautiful work of art. I would like to donate it to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

The third photo shows another way to express yourself creatively. A window in an ordinary facade that is used as a frame for a remarkable landscape that is certainly not behind the window. I think this is a wonderful work for the Musem More (museum for modern realism) in Gorssel, the Netherlands.
