Tosca

So, I’ve missed a couple Saturday Morning Art Blogging posts, and today isn’t Saturday morning, but I wanted to get this one up as part of the series. Last night, we went to the opera to see Tosca.

The idea of casting and capturing the negative space, making the open solid – this was brilliant to me. She’s also one of the major artists… Continue reading Reversal of Space
