Niki's Lips


I was first introduced to Niki de Saint Phalle at UCSD
where her large bird sculpture is our revered Sun God.
I read somewhere that she was from Neuilly Sur Seine,
the same neighborhood in Paris where I lived for a few years during my childhood.
I appreciated her colorful curvy creations and found delight in each new project I discovered,
like these famous lips near Centre Pompidou in Paris.
