    I don’t know how I haven’t thought of this connection at all, but it brings me a bit of a thrill to start thinking about it. The art world is mostly a mystery to me, but when I encountered Kiefer I was stunned. It’s one of my strongest memories of visiting San Francisco (the Modern Art Museum had a feature on him).

      I appreciate your comments–Kiefer is my favorite contemporary artist. He possesses the uncanny ability to covey to the viewer the emotion behind his works by drawing us into his world. He is brilliant.
