Vacuum (Swept From The Closet)

“Are you drawing that vacuum cleaner?

It had been pulled from the closet.

“You are! You’re drawing that vacuum cleaner!”

He inhaled/exhaled concentration, fumes of marker slashes, too, in the air.

“Since when are vacuum cleaners great art?”

In-out, till, with renewed compression of breath/stare, he flipped the sheet over the spiralwired pad, began again.

    I guess it depends on who is drawing the vacuum!

    Keep writing!


  4. It’s a still life! Everyone draws boring fruit bowls so why not a vacumn cleaner? Love it, and good luck with the November thing.

    I hope the drawing doesn’t suck…

    *runs away quickly*
    Vacuum cleaner puns are terribly lowbrow–sorry. ;_P

    I love the inhale/exhale of marker fumes and slashes–very visual and neat 55, K.

    Loved your artsy Fartsy 55 MD

    I can think of a world of objects less deserving of the term. Certainly it becomes great art in your hands.

    oh vacuum cleaners ARE great art…just reminded me of the jeff koons exhibition i visited a while ago…he had a hall full with all vacuum cleaners…and heck it WAS art..smiles

      Well, I agree that vacuum cleaners are great art. And that Jeff Koons is a definite artist. That said, I do like vacuum cleaners as art, but I don’t really like Jeff Koons so much. It’s not the subject matter, it’s the sleek sheen of the metal. There’s one downtown here – the cherries that is quite nice but I just don’t care much for the big balloon dogs. Not on an “is it art?” level – perhaps on a “is it good art?” level. I find them a bit slick, like things more gnarly. But THANKS much for your comment. Hope you are over your jet lag! k.

    I say it is a beautiful continuous line sketch. A handsomer vacuum I have yet to see. And I love the smell of permanent marker 🙂


I'd love to hear from you!
