About the Art:
Origin of Inspiration by Carrie Martinez 2015 (acrylic on canvas, painted live at Miami Art Basel)
See this painting in the 2017 We'Moon Daybook...Thank you We'Moon!
"Origin of Inspiration" explores the concept of the artist's muse, and how the source of creative expression can come from the physical world (earth, nature, people, animals, even the self), as well as from otherworldly sources (the stars, spirit guides, angels, ancestors, God and Goddess). The artist in essence becomes a channel for this creative energy, bringing forth something from nothing. They are magicians, wielding their power of manifestation. There is thus a universal connection between art, science, and spirit)
This is one of my favorite paintings! I was inspired to paint "Origin of Inspiration" after seeing the amazing photography of Carla Coulson (carlacoulson.com). I started working on it live at the High Dive in Gainesville, and continued it at Moksha Gallery for Miami Art Basel. Shortly after, I traveled to the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors and met Alex and Allyson Grey. Inspired by their vision and values, I decided then and there to change the purpose of my art to focus on uplifting the spirit. I came back and finished painting "Origin" with this new vision. I hope it inspires in you a connection with your greatest creative expression!
