**This is not another story** 2005 Pavement art by Richard Deacon
100 resin bricks set in the pavement outside the Ikon gallery Brindley Place Birmingham. Plastic Fragments collected from Beahces all round the UK then set in resin into the pavement.
“”Fixed into the pavement, the plastic has been reinserted back into the city, underfoot and unnoticed blurring the line between Art and everyday Life”“
We often presume creativity is the domain of youth, that great artists are young geniuses, brash and brilliant iconoclasts…
…But there’s another path to artistic success, one that doesn’t rely on sudden flashes of insight but on the trial-and-error accumulation of knowledge that ultimately leads to novel manifestations of wisdom and judgment. This is Eastwood’s and Bourgeois’ path — and it was the path for a host of other artists: Titian and Rembrandt, Monet and Rodin, Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier, Mark Twain and Henry James, Robert Frost and Elizabeth Bishop, to name a few. (Twain wrote “Tom Sawyer” at 41 and bettered it with “Huckleberry Finn” at 50; Wright completed Fallingwater at 72 and worked on the Guggenheim Museum until his death at 91.)
