When I was a child I believed my life was a massive novel in which I was the main character. I believed the book sat in the hands of a giant who lived in a pastoral town much like The Shire from “The Hobbit, There and Back Again.” The giant read aloud from the book every night to his child. My imagined view of myself as a storybook character comforted me in times of stress and anxiety. It made me feel as though someone bigger was out there hearing my story, sharing my existence.
Beautiful is elated to present Giant’s Child, an exhibition of new works by Alison Veit. Veit lives and works in Los Angeles; solo exhibitions include SAY IT WITH BLACK ROSE. at Room East in New York and I Can’t Read at Chin’s Push in LA.
