As I mentioned in the prior posts, Seward Johnson tries to make art accessible and understandable. He feels the Impressionist painters also did this, In an homage to these masters, he has rendered some of their paintings in 3-D as sculptures. While visiting Grounds for Sculpture, my wife and I looked up the original paintings on our phones and then tried to frame the sculptures accordingly. Here are the side by side comparisons. See what you think.
Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles and Seward Johnson’s Recreation
Entering this one is a bit disorienting because the furnishings are at such odd angles. It is a bit like PeeWee’s Playhouse. Seward Johnson used to use this as his bedroom in his studio.
