I recently went on a trip to Boston, MA to visit art galleries and museums. I spent many hours in the Museum of Fine Arts and above are images of a few highlights from my journey.
I gravitated towards a small aquamarine sculpture of Guanyin with child. Guanyin is the Boddhisattva associated with compassion. I found it beautiful that someone would take a piece of fine natural material and work to carve and shape a timeless image of a mother and child. To me this symbolized the creative process, the birth of your truth, your essence, the miracle of love and what is possibile within each of us.
A sculpture of Ganesh resonated with me. I read that he is a god of good fortune and auspicious beginnings. I felt a sense of possibility within the human landscape when I stood in front of this sculpture, a creative spark, a sense that anything is possible.
I also enjoyed the work of Beth Carter at the Axele Gallery. I love discovering a new artist that resonates with me. It's like finding a kindred spirit and delighting in their discoveries. Her work comes from the subconscious and the real world, playful, yet strange, intriguing, evocatively beautiful.
This was a very inspiring trip. It was exciting to experience a taste of what the Boston art world has to offer.back
