Life Made Neat and Tidy by Ursus Wehrli


This week I purchased a book by Ursis Wehrli. Just a wonderful little book with amazing, funny and inspiring work by this Swiss artist. Some people have this thing called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This translates to behavior like always having to touch the door knob 3 times before leaving the room. Or arranging everything as straight as possible. And this OCDness is something that went through my mind when I saw Wehrli’s work. His work seems so simple. He takes it upon himself to organize the world we live in. From the very small, like a bowl of fruit, to something huge, like the night sky.

Perhaps he is doing this because he just wants to place everything in order. Or perhaps it’s a way for him to teach us how to look differently at our everyday world. His work puts a smile on my face. I hope it does the same for you.
