Mary Lum is one of the artists I met at the MacDowell Colony on Medal Day. What a nice person. She told a quick story. She goes to Paris once a year, buys a journal at Muji and picks up detritus from the street to make art with. She says Paris is a great place for posters and once an event is over the paper is strewn about. She picks it up and puts it in her journal. One year she cut through the pages…so one page led to the next. She said it was totally random…that she was just interested in the serendipity. I’m not crazy for her work but I loved her. At one point I asked about 3 pieces lined up…how did they go together…? She said they didn’t…but she wished she could make them do so!
