About this piece
I took some time out to deal with some really heavy emotions by creating art. Since then, I have made the conscious decision to embrace the healing beauty and ease of how expressive art comes to me (and flows through me).
This second artwork was also created together under the Blood Moon in July 2018.
One of the female artists who inspire me and who I recently discovered is Helen Frankenthaler. She was an American abstract expressionist painter who was very active in New York in the 1950's.
One of the quotes by Helen that inspires me, and that I shared on my Instagram account is:
“There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.”
Rules should be used as a guideline, but we also need to see how innovation and magic can happen when we break rules.
Innovation and beauty lay beneath the often stifling weight of rules and societal expectations.
It is time to break them to break free.
