~~~~Stink bugs. Everywhere. All season. Yuck, I really hate them. While painting the other day, I removed the switch plate cover only to find a fried, dead corpse of a stink bug. How did it even get back there? How did they get here- all the way from China without any predators? Why do they need to be attracted to the light in MY HOUSE!
Then, I saw Kait’s artwork waiting to be printed for Push. Pull. Print. My first reaction was “hmmmmmmmmm”. I said to Chris “Wow, she made something really beautiful out of something so completely annoying.” I liked that- looking at stink bugs in a different way. Considering them art. I never thought I would say this, about a stink bug, but she made them beautiful.
Thank you, Kait, for reminding me to look at things in a different way. For reminding me to not be annoyed by the little things. For reminding me to find beauty when I think there is none. Please come check out Kait Ryan’s artwork at Push. Pull. Print on December 2 at Countryside and Radhouse Gallery in Newtown. You too may look at stink bugs in a whole new way (for a little while at the least).
Countryside and Radhouse Gallery is located on the corners of Washington and State Streets in Newtown, PA
Opening reception is 7:00 PM on December 2, 2011
