Full of grace. Once a dancer, always a #dancer. #Poet, #humanitarian . #Repost @brookeshaden ・・・ An honest admission of my desire for praise in art, my desire to create quickly, to have created anything at all...and my new peace in emphasizing CREATING over CREATION, to love the process and not the product, to detach myself from the tangible, and from being liked. 🌿 http://ift.tt/2FPb4x0 (link in bio) 🌿 "It was somewhere around month 5 of thinking about my new series and coming up empty that I had a breakdown. I felt like such a failure as an artist. I felt I had let myself down. What I had really done was let myself go. I let go of the artist I was. I let go of the expectation I put on myself. I let go of the expectation I felt from others."

#Repost @brookeshaden ・・・ Once it was empty, so vast it told me it was full of nothing but absence. That was before tide pulled the moonrise. Before the ancient soul of the world reached inside and let me see. 🌙 "Moonrise", February 2018 Model: @sarasilkin

So worth the read. Shaden is a #hero. Repost @brookeshaden : My loves, I am in the middle of an experience that is changing me. I'm on the island of Lesvos teaching self expression to refugees. This is my first time in an active crisis zone. I feel all at once the sorrow, the raw energy, the joy at expressing, the difficulty of showing vulnerability. It is so hard. We've met people from Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, West Sahara, Morocco, and more. There are too many languages and not enough translators, too much pain and not enough healing, too much need and not enough help. This image is the perfect metaphor for my experience, and I think for the experience of many here. I'll update more when I can, but know this - the art we're making is helping, it is really being felt, and that alone fills my heart.

So great to see this! #peopleintrees1964 #Repost @thejealouscurator YOU GUYS! I have been waiting to share this for SO LONG, and this being #InternationalWomensDay seemed like the perfect time! This is my new baby, I mean book, that I've been working on for the past year. It's a big important art book, filled with female artists (I have far too many big important art books that "forgot" to include any, so I'm taking care of that). I am ridiculously proud of it, and so excited to share the stories/artwork of 45 contemporary artists, 30 historical artists and a whole bunch of projects to inspire the countless artists of the FUTURE! 8"x8"'s of hardcover goodness filled with unstoppable women. (ps. preorders will be ready in a couple of weeks, on shelves Oct 2! GAH!) #bigimportantartbook #nowwithwomen 💕 (gigantic thanks to @runningpressbooks for giving me the chance to write this book, and for letting me call it this!!!) #artbook #nowwithwomen #thejealouscurator #abigimportantartbook #pressforprogress
