Have you ever been caught unawares by the sunlight falling over an ordinary corner of the room? In its path of revelation, colors and shadows that you never noticed become apparent. The air is electric with expectation and time slows down so you can drink it in. Then you wonder , which is the real place and time? What has allowed you to notice the lively energy and vivid colors? How can you save this memory? How can you see past your daily routines, allowing light, time and space to open another view of the ordinary?
Pierre Bonnard, in the current exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, "The Late Still Lives and Interiors", shows us the results of his attention to daily routine. A breathtaking exhibition that brought tears to my eyes in its simplicity and grace! A show not to be missed! it will help you to see beyond the mundane!
