Michelle and I have tried to maintain one constant on this blog and that’s to always write about what interests us and what we find inspiring. We find that most of the time it will also resonate with you, it may be something of a collective consciousness, you know when you start to be interested in something and all of a sudden it seems like so many other people are as well? When I was in fashion I was always awed by this phenomena amongst designers, there was just no way to explain how every designer worth his/her salt all of sudden was introducing the same type of X, Y, Z. It was spectacular and I still am perplexed by it, how? I don’t know the answer to that I’m afraid, I wish I did though! We are introducing a series called MUSE, we thought we would launch it with a ‘week of’ posts, we wanted to explore the idea of multiple creatives in different disciplines with the same ‘muse’ and how they interpret it. I think this is an amazing exercise, especially if you are feeling forlorn that an artist is doing something that you wished you would have or that you were working on and they got to it first. There are just so many ways to interpret the same ‘muse’ we hope that this series inspires you to find your own unique creative take on a subject or that you discover an artist that you want to explore more of. I know that when I was doing my research I felt wildly inspired (and yes, maybe a bit envious) but more motivated to try to figure out what my own muse is.
First up is artist Bobbie Burgers! Michelle introduced me to her large scale acrylic blooms and I have to say it’s hard to get out of my mind. It has made me proclaim that I want to paint (even though I have never done so before), not that I can draw either (but more on that later), but her work makes me want to learn. If someone inspires you enough to take up a new skill then they must be doing something right. I won’t bore you with my commentary, Burgers it seems is a darling of the art, home decor and fashion world and there is much to read up on this dynamic individual so I will provide you a list of resources to do just that!
