Olga Rapay modelled a series of quite beautiful porcelain figurines depicting the styles and moods of the 1960’s. Here is one I saw in Moscow yesterday (Tretyakov Gallery). Delicate. Quite magical. Simple shapes. Primary colours.
In a small-ish glass cabinet. Unseen……almost.
Striking once noticed though.
I am going to find out more about this artist but my guess is she did plenty before her big break. Maybe it was a small break. Perhaps she came from nothing and disappeared into oblivion or stayed about for a while in the minds and hearts of people. Is she still alive….does anyone care much for her these days?
Two things arising.
- I was pleased I was curious enough to go over to the cabinet. I have learned something new;
- To get noticed must you be not noticed? Do you generally have to be insignificant first?
