Artist of the Day- Jasper Johns (click on the image to see more)

He sort of began as a pop artist. Not deliberately. There are no categories when the artists are making the work. The categories come later…created by the critics! But then his work moved on. That’s when I really began to love it.

His ‘Seasons’ series with his shadow in each one seem very soulful to me. The muted colors with references to both the weather and art make me think of both the passage of time and the artist’s life.
