Artwork Story

Exhibited Laguna Art Museum 1998-9 "Life Lessons: How Art Can Change Your Life"

Stuart Spence

Rena Small's work shows another perspective of four artists whom we admire a lot. You have a chance to look for the truth and character in each portrait. Besides, we knew we were never going to be able to collect a Christo or a Carl Andre'. Thia was Andre's response "how would you like to photograph them?" - taken before Ana Mendieta's death.
