I wish I could create works so full of life and emotion. Until that dream comes true, I'll be quite content admiring Alberto Giacometti's work. His pieces are hard to catagorise, a value finally becoming recognised recognised by art critics who often want to place an artist in a labelled box. It cannot be denied, however, that they convey aspects of the surrealist movement and, some say, existentialist view points (both suggested by the elongated style of most of his work).
