at first glance, the image of the artist, Marina Abramovic, holding a bowl of milk is remarkable if only for its hyper-realism. as you observe the image, however, she moves slightly and a little milk from the bowl falls to the floor. we are immediately transfixed by her endurance. The kitchen window backlights the artist in her sober black dress recalling paintings of the Dutch School, but the use of video and flat screen display rips us into the 21st century. Very cool.
