Odditorium: On Looking At Art
This is a picture book, primarily for children, in which the artist Sue Clancy describes what she was thinking and how she worked as she created each of her paintings for a fine art series called Odditorium. Clancy uses her imagination to create each of the images in this artist book and you can use your imagination too as you look at the images. To help readers use their imaginations there is a cartoon of the artist as a guide giving the descriptions in this book.
The Odditorium fine art series is Sue Clancy using her imagination and taking an odd view of ordinary objects from around the house and painting them in whimsical situations with animal characters.
Clancy created this coffee table book for children because she believes that children need fine art and imagination in their lives too.
For adults there’s a coffee table style version of this book – titled Odditorium – that doesn’t have the guide and descriptions.
