Yoko Ono 1966
This past month I have been enjoying Yoko Ono’s Instructional Pieces; primarily for instructions on creating peace. These “Paintings” are conceptual poems that prompt the viewer into a particular mental exercise.
Specifically important to me was Ono’s “Yes Painting”. Considering the circus rodeo - that is our nation’s election, this piece brought language of glass ceilings, misogyny, and violence.
Additionally, Ono’s “Painting to Hammer a Nail In” very eloquently describes my feelings of incapacity to make change. A life constructed of glass may tell a story, but that narrative likely changes in the physical world.
High praise to Yoko Ono for creating enduring works of art that adds to the vitreous vocabulary.
