and although i never really liked suess’ art style, i made sure to check out the secret art collection exhibit at the pendulum gallery. because nostalgia. plus it was free.
through adult eyes, i found i still didn’t like artwork from books like Horton Hears a Who!, The Cat in the Hat, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, however, there were a couple of pieces that i did like (and that i don’t remember from when i was young):
the exhibit featured 40 estate-authorized, limited-edition renderings of the seuss’ drawings, paintings, and sculptures. it was the first time they were shown and available for sale in vancouver, with prices ranging from $800 to $15,500 per piece.
the surreal and whimsical sure do cost a pretty penny! good thing i can just admire them (and be transported back to childhood) for free.
