“We All Shine On” an interview with Yoko Ono on John Lennon’s art

Yoko Ono knows what it’s like to have people second guess her work because of who she is. Many who are unfamiliar with her success in ability as a visual artist.“Many people still consider him not a very professionally valuable artist. I’d really like to say that you should get what you can from John’s work because it’s really unique and beautiful,” Ono said. “There’s a spirit shining in it.”And it’s naysayers like that she’s vowed to campaign against. It was a promise she made to Lennon before he died.When John passed away I realized that both of us were artists and we wanted to communicate with the world. John can no more in a way, so I wanted to make sure that his work would be communicated. That is my pledge to John,” she said.

Yoko Ono: Come together with John Lennon art

Yoko Ono calls from the kitchen of her Manhattan home. Her voice is small but words tumble out at a New York pace, like an overturned box of nuts and bolts and deck screws.She is “up to my neck” in projects, she admits, “but we don’t talk about my things, we talk about John’s work.” And for the next few minutes, her voice softens into a graceful glide. After 20 years of talking about it, Ono has lost none of her affection for the touring exhibition “Remember Love: The Artwork of John Lennon.”
