I have returned to my art roots and have decided to “share my work“ (refer to Show Your Work by Austin Kleon).
years ago my mother’s death inspired haunting night dreams that I wrote down, that I needed to express through art. This art became Inside the Belly of the Whale, which has taken several forms, from a gallery installation exhibition, to a DVD, to its current form, a journal.
I’m choosing to share the work from my art journal weekly. My hope is to create a space for self-expression in all of its many forms because I believe art heals.
this site’s link labeled Ideas + shows how others have used music, books, articles etc. as inspiration for self-expression.
He’s dying, is a line from the movie Kodachrome – film on Netflix. The line implies that even through he was a difficult person you should put that aside and spend time with him.
The set-up from Wikipedia – Matt Ryder is an A&R representative at a record label who is in danger of losing his job after his company’s biggest client signs with another label. His father’s assistant and nurse Zooey Kern arrives at his office and informs him that his father Ben, a famous photographer, is terminally ill. Though they have not spoken in over ten years, Ben has requested that Matt drive him to Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, the last shop that still develops Kodachrome film. Ben has several undeveloped rolls he wants to have processed before he dies, and Dwayne’s will stop in the near future because Kodak no longer makes the required dyes.
