My first introduction to the impact of size and common objects was definitely through the work of sculptor Claes Oldenburg.
Safety Pin, De Young Museum, San Fransico
Clothes Pin, Philadelphia, PA near City Hall
Spoonbridge and Cherry • Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN
His work, his sense of design, and his compositions always make me smile. I make a point of checking them out when we travel. It is a different experience to stand next to a huge clothes pin.
