Slaughtering Our Finest Impulses

“Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.”

— Henry Miller, Sexus (via) ♥

Our Own Sanctity

“The greatest art symbolizes not those things that we have observed so much as those things that we have experienced, and when the imaginary saint or lover or hero moves us most deeply, it is the moment when he awakens within us for an instant our own heroism, our own sanctity, our own desire.”

— W. B. Yeats (via litverve) ♥

Art New England: November/December

This fall, I had the pleasure of reviewing Mel Bochner at Barbara Krakow and writing a spotlight feature (swanky name for a longer review) of SMFA’s out of bounds exhibition at the Rockport Art Association.

out of bounds showcased the work of 18 faculty and alumni from the SMFA and it was wonderful to see contemporary work by regional creatives exhibited for the first time in such a historical space. Hooray for progress!

If you simply can’t wait for the latest issue of Art New England to arrive in your hot little hands, my ~700 word debriefing is available online here.

Enjoy! ♥
