Behind the Art

I'll be interviewing Haley Carmo later on this week so I thought it would be fun to introduce one of her works today and play a little game.



As a kid, one of my favorite games to play was to watch strangers and make up little stories about them - making up my own dialogue to their conversations... I think it's safe to assume that when we look at art, we all make up our own meanings but often wonder what the artist had in mind or what he/she meant by that bold stroke or that faint dot. So I asked Haley for the real meaning behind 1987 and 1988, two of the meanings above are made up (I made one of them up). Can you guess which one is the true meaning behind the art? A, B or C? or better yet, share and make up a meaning of your own!! The true meaning will be revealed on her interview!
