Niki de Saint Phalle
Moon Goddess

The controversial elements are Cocteau and Chagall. We do not see such things, as so often they are dispersed as ambassadors, let me introduce myself, I am from Paris and the shtetl is my friend’s home.

Dubuffet has a constructional appearance that is like a tessitura of weightlessness or the easy way to grow plants by the wayside, moving as delicately as Calder’s mobiles. Not only to my thinking mind, but yours as well (like as not), completely unperturbed by the sight, except to say here as the origination of a solid state theory as good as any, better than most, serviceable to a cosmos, are the last works of Niki de Saint Phalle.
