I'm attracted to Niki de Saint Phalle's art because of their almost childlike qualities. Her sculptures are not serious and anatomically correct as one may think of as a traditional sculpture, but they are playful in their nature and utilize different materials and bright colors, in a easy as if each sculpture has arisen out of a children's storybook or folktale. Die Waldaff (1962), which we looked at in class is a great example of this. The woman's exaggerated features and bright clothes could be analyzed on an in depth level by art critics, but it has appeal to a young child as well. One thing I fell upon by Niki de Saint Phalle, is The Golem, a slide in Jerusalem where the slides are tongues of a monster. It is located in a historic park and played on daily by young children. It is not very often that an artist can connect to viewers both young and old. I believe that the element of play that Saint Phalle incorporates into her work is an essential aspect to this and likely a large reason for her success.
