Vacation #2

It was cold and overcast with a chance of rain today, so instead of going to the park as planned, I went to the museum, specifically for the Edvard Munch exhibit.  I’d been wanting to go since I heard about it some time in August.  I’m a huge fan of his work, and this exhibit is a perfect illustration of why.

Faces look skeletal or ghost-like.  Every piece is haunted.  By death and fear, most certainly, but also by love, jealousy, sadness and sickness.  By life, really, and the act of living.  After all, there’s really nothing more frightening than life itself.  I could go into more detail on the thoughts I had as studied the prints, but I don’t really want to bother.  If you’re in NC, I highly recommend going to check this one out.
