Artist Daniel Arsham, Like A Sheet

by Sherry Riter in Art  

Daniel Arsham, an American contemporary artist, creates sculptures that defy our thoughts and belief of space.

I was immediately drawn to his art because it is white and the fabric pieces remind me of being a little girl. I used to hide under a sheet and thought that no one could see me. So silly.

Anyway, I love the simple, smooth, clean lines and softness of Daniel’s art pieces.

I can tell that you were the model for Daniel Arsham, Hiding Figure, 2011, but you were wrong when you wrote, “I used to hide under a sheet and thought that no one could see me.” Of course we can see you. Those shoes are a definite giveaway. They’re so you! 🙂

Your mom got nothing out of this one, lol.

I always saw you under the sheet because your little red hair always poked out,lol. Or you pulled it so tight that I saw your perfect face profile,lol.

I love you Sherry. This was a nice memory. I also remember the microphone. I still like the microphone…you know, your bed post tops,lol. Or how about how your socks could not have a wrinkle in them and you wouldn’t let them slide down your leg even a fraction, lol.

I was totally oblivious to the fact that I wasn’t invisible. I really thought since I couldn’t see you, it was impossible for you to see me. LOL

I love you too, Mom. I have a lot of nice memories of being a small child.
