Recreational Play on Perception. An illustration of the visual effect of semantic metaphors and the importance or “non-importance” of context when exploring the essential. In this series, I used an avocado seed as basis for an exploration on essence and meaning.
The term “Grenn Zaboka”(Avocado seed), almost mechanincally brought me to the “Sevi Zorye” (used as pillow) ; Lyrics of a popular song of my childhood inked in my subconscious mind. Taking this sentance and exploring out of the context inspired the images allowing this “grenn zaboka” to actually serve as serve as a pillow on which I can stand or supporting order explore how we perceive things.

Women Artists Visibility Event: The Museum of Modern Art opens but not to women artists, NYC on June 14, 1984
Shot by Clarissa Sligh
Despite the increased visibility of women artists by 1984, most were not included in mainstream gallery or museum exhibitions. When the Museum Of Modern Art opened the exhibition the “International Survey of Painting and Sculpture,” with great fan fare, of the 169 artists chosen, all were white and less than 10 percent were women.
Women artists were incensed. The Women’s Caucus for Art and other women’s groups in the area organized to protest the underrepresentation of women artists.
Included in the photographs are Lucy Lippard, May Stevens, Linda Cunningham, Emma Amos, Sabra Moore, Sharon Jaddis, and Alida Walsh. The posters were pasted all over Soho, a vastly different place from the Soho of today.

Maybe it’s the rain, maybe it’s the silence but tonight I am totally inspired to write something about inspiration. And, although I cannot find my glasses and have to squint to read the words on the screen, I am committed to share my insights.
A few days ago I received an instagram notification where I was thanked by a friend of mine for the inspiration of a nature photograph he had taken. I was naturally very flattered that someone had find his inspiration through my work. But then I once again asked myself what is really inspiration? And how does one get inspired?
Inspiration is one of these things that cannot be described else way than metaphorically. I see inspiration as a big breath of life that started with the beginning and will end with the end. From time to time, some individuals are able to let it pass trough them and highlight some of the mysteries of the complexity of life. So one never really inspire another, but only helps him find his way to inspiration.
So how does one get inspired? (Worry of mine as an artist).
I have once read a Chuck Close quote as follows: “I don’t work with inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs. I just get to work.”
Although I do not really agree, that inspiration is for amateurs ( I am never really comfortable with the distinction between professionals and amateurs, specifically in art), I couldn’t agree more with “I just get to work”. Inspiration had never found anyone who did not try. Being inspired only means something when we are able to get something out of a circumstance and translate it into something valuable, whether that “thing” be intellectual, material , or spiritual. Inspiration shows itself only those who create those circumstances, only to those who get to work. My experience, without the work, when inspiration comes to you, you don’t even recognize it.
So put on the work! Let it find you, and if you don’t feel it, know that it is only its way to tell you to try a bit harder or to try something else. Trust yourself.
