With the impossible task of emptying her heart, artist Kalman begins The Principles of Uncertainty. This collection of drawings and writings from a curious, observational mind is equally soothing and engaging.
I have a place in my heart for those who walk about through their worlds, observe and call proudly “Notice this!” For instance, Marianne Moore’s poetry and Oliver Sack’s end of life reminiscences.
By drawing things immediate and intimate, Kalman emphasizes the rotational change of humanity. She connects disparate things. She shows us that above all we are all intimately connected. That much is certain.
