Viewing Wolgang Laib’s piece, “Pollen from Hazelnut” from above. MOMA. March 8, 2013

While visiting New York City with my fine art class this past weekend, I got the opportunity to see Wolfgang Laib’s piece, “Pollen from Hazelnut” at the MOMA. Although my work is nothing like his in appearance, we share interests in the natural and spiritual:

“Informed by the purity and simplicity of Eastern philosophies, he employs natural materials, most notably milk, pollen, beeswax, rice and marble. His works are more complex than being just about nature and the natural world. They involve ritual, repetition, process, and a demand for contemplation.”
