I’ve been thinking about the idea of coincidence vs. miracle for a few days now. Most people will frequently dismiss a serendipitous happening as a mere coincidence. I on the other hand, believe in everyday miracles and love their occurrence in even the smallest moments. Like running late for a meeting and magically finding a parking spot right in front of the place you need to meet, making you on time.
So this morning I was thrilled by the message from our WIM (Women in Motion) leader Wanda, because it is helpful in tying my thoughts together. She sent us a link to a motivational slide show. The first screen includes a quote by Vivian Greene, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain!”
Tomorrow as I head to my New York art debut, I plan to be mindful of the miracles and keep moving forward.
Before leaving I began my exploration process for completing the assemblage that started with the sculpted head (now fired). I decided to sculpt hands and feet. The gesture of the hands were inspired by Byzantine Icon figures.These 5 sculpted pieces will be combined with found objects to convey a narrative concept.
This is all pretty raw. I’m not sure how this will all come together. We can share in the discovery together.
i like your work and happy that ceramics are on artslant just on the off chance ..do you know jack summers collage artist in detroit we were in a class together at arowmont and have remained friends for 5-6 years ..
Thank you for your comments. No, I don’t know Jack Summers, but the name sounds familiar. Does he show at the Detroit Artist Market? Do you have work on ArtSlant?
