Spirit Animal Quiz

My spirit animal is the owl but originally I was the wolf apparently.
I am also connected with the butterfly and coyote. Definately good inspiration for this work. :)

Inspiration for my unique self proposal

Unique Self Art proposal at Alpha House Gallery.

Yes I know this blog is usually fan girl but I do want to use this blog for serious things from time to time.
Such as writing about the research I do that goes into my work.
Recently I saw the hidden treasures of Afghanistan at the Art Gallery of NSW and I found inspiration for my work. This proposal calls me to do a work on my unique self.
I have chosen to do a work that is an artistic metaphor of myself.
An alter ego photography series that combines spirituality, culture and animal. A beautifully primal self. I saw some works in this exhibition that inspired me.
So basically there was this nomadic culture that used gold a lot in their clothes and trinkets as an establishment of social status and it was also a symbolic thing that represented abilities of not decaying. Almost as if wearing gold would make these people immortal.
I will post pics of some of their treasures that inspired me.
Cheers
Sarah-Josie

Love note to the z’s! Yewwww!

"I got lost in the night, without the light
of your eyelids, and when the night surrounded me
I was born again: I was the owner of my own darkness."

"Absence is a house so vast
that inside you will pass through its walls
and hang pictures on the air."

- Pablo Neruda, excerpt from “Sonnet XCIV” (via larmoyante)

"But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me."

"Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.

Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain."

- Pablo Neruda, from “Here I Love You” (via youreyesblazeout)
