Jasper Johns’ explained that his use of familiar imagery – flags, letters – derives from “things the mind already knows.”
Note: There are many sites listing artists by their birthday and presenting their biographies. My project differs because I am focusing on the artists’ process whenever possible, and giving just a brief summary of their work along with my comments. Being able to peek into artist’s studios is fascinating to me. I’m hoping to learn more about how artists work and maybe find some artists who are new to me.
