Yesterday I treated myself to meditative sketching instead of drawing train seats, tops of a heads bent over cell phones and luggage rails.
My destination in NYC was the Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum. Fortunately, the Hilma af Klint exhibition is still on. I was thrilled by her work once again.
Mapplethorpe's photographs, large gelatin silver prints, took my breath away. His composition and design is impeccable and his complex interweaving of story, documentation, views on society and religion inspired me to dig so much deeper into my own thoughts, visions and attitudes.
