Art World

Inspired by.

Works by Ellen Sherman


recently with my work i've been feeling uninspired. i just moved and i feel like the change in space has made me feel like i am floating - stuck in the in-between. i feel disconnected for my work but i need to  get grounded again.

today i am going to look at artist i've been having a crushing on and try to bring new elements into my work. to push it further and do new things. we'll see how it goes. but here is a starting point of what gets me excited.

The double standard.

I am not a mother but I am a career driven individual that worries that having kids may take away from my identity and all I have done to get where I am. I know they won't, and that they will most likely add to it but, it is refreshing to hear voices in the Art World address it head on. It is also empowering to see so many creative role models sneer at this archaic thought.
