Mimi Butler – Dog Rug – The Shot I Never Forgot7

 

While I was printmaking in Berlin I would spend most Sundays at the various markets around town, My favorite market was in an old cobbled square surrounded by tall tenements with the items on sale looking like they had been dragged out of people homes – a whole kitchen, medical lab gear, a plastic bar with a bear, gas masks from the GDR all jostled for attention but then my eyes fell on this.. a dog rug with eyes that follow you.. I really regretted not buying this wunderbar item, although at the time 30 euros seemed a bit pricy.
