“The Dog That Wanted to Bite the Moon”
Recently I went to a ceramic exhibition. The artist, João Donato, studied at the City and Islington College under the supervision of ceramist Daphne Carnegy. It was a really nice moment. His creativeness shows in his works and the titles he picks for them: “The Difficult Digestion of the Serpent”, “The Architect’s Tie” or “The Shadow of Detective Cantor”. I had a favorite called “The Secret”.
I picked an exhibition as my best of October in recognition of Donato and many others like him. Artists around here don’t have support. As far as I know, it’s almost inexistent. Being an artist here is an act of courage.
