Patrick Acton, an artist from Iowa (actually, my birth state, too), makes the three little pigs look like amateurs! A master of matchstick sculpture, he builds each model using nothing but needle nosed pliers and glue, patiently adding thousands of matchsticks one stick at a time.
I wish I could have gone to Australia to see this exhibition (and maybe even partake in it!). Yayoi Kusama (born 1929) created in installation at the Queensland Art Gallery in Australia that was a couple of “domestic-syle rooms” like a living room and kitchen. But everything was painted white. And once the exhibition opened, the children who visited the museum were given colored dot stickers to decorate the rooms! How amazing is that? Here are a few photos from the ‘Obliteration Room’ installation.
