Life’s retrospective

April 7th, 2008

Today we visited the Sidney Nolan exhibition at the Potter Gallery in Melbourne.250px-nolan-kelly-the_slip.jpg

While looking at this great artist’s work across a lifetime and seeing, as one does in a retrospective, the changes, developments and influences manifest in his art, I reflected what a gift this is. And wondered if it’s possible for us mere mortals who bumble our way through life to have access to a similar retrospective. I’ve always admired people who can keep journals for this very reason – the story of their lives recorded and available for reflection. I’ve relied on my (unreliable) memory and a few artefacts to track my life’s journey. Now I suspect that blogging and twitter may provide a window through which we may glimpse our lives (and the lives of others) and that which influences us.
