Inspiration

In the NY Times Thursday Styles section a few weeks ago I read this great quote from William Faulkner:

“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again, since it is life.”

Aside from spending time with a few of my besties, the favorite moments of a recent (and way too brief) visit to NYC were spent at the Guggenheim seeing arrested motion moving again.  The Kandinsky show could not be in a better venue…to be able to see the paintings from so many different views and levels was truly wonderful.  Breathtaking indeed. 

 

And Memory, the Anish Kapoor piece, is a gigantic jewel!  He is a new hero.  Inspiration at it’s best.

 

You have until January 13 for Kandinsky and March 28 for Kapoor.  Get there!
