I was lucky enough to see the Henri Matisse Cut-Outs exhibit at the MoMA, and it totally blew me away. The ways in which he plays with colour and shapes are amazing. I was also so impressed with the size of his works - and the simplicity of the pieces. I usually try to go for intricacy in my work - because it makes me feel more legit (aka...it looks harder...). However, this really inspired me to play with simple yet beautiful ideas and designs.
I always feel like I'm straddling a line between art and craft ("high brow craft, low brow art" is my favourite way to describe it) but seeing Matisse's gorgeous work in the MoMA reminds me that something that may look like decor, or craft can be "Real" Art too!
