GIMANESA AMOROS ON HER FAVORITE WORK OF ART

By  Kelly Crow | November 25, 2014

What’s your favorite work of art?

Every artist has one, a wish-I’d-done-that creation that inspires envy and admiration in equal measure. Some of the world’s top artists’ eyes light up whenever they’re asked to name an artwork they saw early on in their careers that triggered their imaginations and got their hearts racing.

Turns out, artists often go back and visit these first loves, to reencounter that painting, sculpture or ancient object that made a turning-point difference in their own creative careers. WSJ’s Kelly Crow and filmmaker Sarah Hanssen visited Peruvian-born artist Grimanesa Amoros who took us to visit her favorite artwork at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Best known for using light and resin to create installations that dangle and pulse, Ms. Amoros’s favorite artwork might surprise. Go with us as we check it out.
