Starting Over

David Greenwood's avatar David Greenwood

David Greenwood is a melancholy optimist who sees life as a tragi-comedy. "Starting Over" is one of his many tableau sculptures exploring life's dichotomies and suggesting many stories. Each viewer may take the title and the objects and interpret them as their life thus far dictates. Viewers should be aware that any time they approach a work of art they bring their whole lives to that moment. The artist creates a sculpture, or in this case, a situation, but that is only half the experience. The viewer, if they are willing to embrace the work, completes the other half of the encounter by engaging their imagination. Please enjoy the little mysteries. Good questions are more valuable than good answers. (And Starting Over isn't easy.)
