“In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
art is meant to stimulate the imagination. hopefully it cures writer’s block. enjoy some of my favorite works of surrealism.
but pretty soon everything’s very different.- Bill Watterson
easily one of my favorite quotes & always makes me think about life; the past, the present, & the future. our experiences, our interests, the people we’ve met & loved, the people we’ve met, loved, & lost, the people who we aspire to be like, the people who we know we never want to be like, our parents or guardians who do their best to raise a good human being, our friends who’ve been in our lives for years who are such a huge part of who we are today, the friends who come and go for a reason… our perceptions, our visions, our talents, & our passions. the roads we took & mistakes we’ve made, the moments of sheer joy & the moments of utter sadness. so much composes a single person; we are like a song.
to think, day in & day out we persevere, we do what we do & at times it might seem repetitive & standing still in time… but change is inevitable.
hanging delicately in the navy night sky
you change on us
but breathtaking you remain
illuminating the sea, sparkling each ripple with a gleaming silver streak
overtake me with your shine
empower me with your madness
drug me with your essence
I think the first photo I remember seeing of his was Britney’s Rolling Stone cover, scantily clad in polka dot pom-pom shorts and black satin bra, clutching a purple TeleTubby which sparked my interest with this brilliant photographer. David LaChapelle is a household name when it comes to “making a statement”, or just being outright WILD. One of his most recent works “Museum” showcases how far he has come as an artist, displaying the versatility and talent of this genius.
