Inspiration with surrealism and German expressionism

Who doesn’t have their mind bent with surrealism? Dream a little dream and draw autonomically.

I visited the Speed Art Museum (http://www.speedmuseum.org) in Louisville with my friend Kathy yesterday and saw works by German Expressionists, Surrealists and a few Jackson Pollocks. All on loan from the Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University.

It was intellectually inspiring, being able to trace revolutions from the late 1800’s to 1950. (http://www.speedmuseum.org/exhibitions/picasso-to-pollock-modern-masterworks-from-the-eskenazi-museum-of-art/)

I walked away with desire and feeling lucky.

Depth of despair

I can’t find anything on my shelves because they grab, prod and remind. They are constantly reminding me of Leonard Cohen biographies, poetry, PMS charts and a few schoolbooks.

I am reminded how heartbroken I can be and feel loss more acutely. When something means more and more, then discover it is lost; it hurts.

There is a fear in the depth of despair.

 

Trial Balloon

After looking at some of Michael Ehrhardt’s work this week, I became inspired. He is an accomplished and prolific German artist, who works in acrylics.

He is masterful.

My artwork defines itself lately by scribing my thoughts in pen, and wanted to give something new a try. I wanted to share the punctuation of line, with an inappropriate/inconsistent/landscape-like background.

I like and may integrate more into my work. Thank you for the inspiration.

 

Gut punched coffee

I am drawing circles hoping to find my rhythm; the mojo queen in my creative desert. It’s no fun to feel abandoned and thirsty.

Drinking gut punched coffee and getting dirty, does the trick. The feeling that your guts are quenched in browns and steam.
