My daughter had been working on her Master's degree in History for three years and after a really tough final semester she graduated in May. I was so excited when I heard that she couldn't wait to get her hands on her crafts again. Oh, all the ideas she had floating around in her head. I wondered, will she make her lovely appliqued baby bibs, her whimsical decoupage magnets and signs, or her sweet little earrings? No, she decided to go way, way, way out on a creative limb and make what she most appropriately calls "girl headed dog" or Freak du Cirque.
Well, it all started with a trip to a favorite trash to treasure trip we took many months ago. She was digging around and found the dog with no head and a doll head with no body. The head fit in the body easily. She smiled. I wondered.
I asked my daughter to bring some of her lovely creations to our Big Cirque Market on Saturday. Stop by and see this piece of contemporary art and contemplate it's meaning as you browse around our shop. Remember art may not always be understood, but it can be fully appreciated.
