leaving your mark on art

I think this weekend’s best amusing news was about the dedicated art admirer who left her red lipstick mark on a painting by the artist Cy Twombly, worth 2 million Euros.

Unfortunately after her passionate act, she was arrested and charged for ‘criminal damage’.

Even so, her actions were thought provoking: ‘this red stain is testimony to the moment to the power of art’….’I found the painting even more beautiful’ said Rindy. ‘The artist left this white for me’.

I wonder what Cy Twombly thought about all of this?

I would like to think that he rejoiced in the fact that his painting has continued to evolve and develop new and unwarrented additions.
