I share what I feel most inspired by. #suspend is a tag I made to record instances in art where I felt it had evoked a sense of suspension in time. Thank you for visiting.

"My goal is to experience the depths of life, to understand people and how they live, and to express this through my art. All my other accomplishments mean nothing to me. If I can only create a masterpiece that achieves the goal I’ve fixed my inward gaze upon during my creative journey, my life will not have been wasted."



Qiu Miaojin, Last Words From Montmartre (translated by Ari Larissa Heinrich)

"If the sun did not rise…I would cover the city of night with lights to gaze forever, star-drunk"



Nadia Anjuman, from “Girlish Heart” (translated by Diana Arterian and Marina Omar)

Thomas Brummett - The Infinities (of Earth and Heaven)
Artist’s statement:
“I combined disparate elements such as mold grown in my studio, stars downloaded from robot cameras in space, snowflakes captured on a winter’s night, to magnolia trees blooming in spring. At the heart of these images are unique camera-less Light Projections which I devised for this project. This series is about my ideas of Infinity.”
If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.—William Blake

Fatalistic tendency by Tushikur Rahman

There is one place in which one’s privacy , intimacy , integrity and inviolability are guaranteed. one’s body and mind , a unique temple and a familiar territory of sense and personal history , space and time are warped by sleep deprivation, the frequent outcome of anxiety and stress. Gradually, one who wishes to suicide loses his mental resilience and sense of freedom. He feels alien and objectified - unable to communicate, relate, attach or empathise with others. He / she floating in the dreams and eventually fleeting in the sky. The taste of suicide. The true sensation. He feels - the extreme fantasy.I could never write a diary, thinking about the things which should be written in a personal diary was the most difficult part for me. Making this photo story was like writing a personal diary about my past, this time I also felt the same difficulty. Thinking about those time is still a difficult part for me.

"We are unutterably alone, essentially, especially in the things most intimate and most important to us."



Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (translated by Joan Marie Burnham)

"We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."



Carlos Castañeda  (via likeafieldmouse)



"There’s this idea going around that strength is all
about appearances, pretending nothing matters and
feigning great resilience. But that could not be
further from the truth. Survival at its essence requires
softness and rest. And if we do not allocate sufficient
time for healing we will find that in the future we are
dismantled by even the most trivial of hardships."



Beau Taplin || Keeping up appearances.  (via afadthatlastsforever)

Female to “Male”
Female to “Male” is a self-portrait project documenting the artist’s transition from female to “male” through weekly photographs, recorded vocal changes, documents and objects that represent a segment or moment in his gender exploration. The project offers an intimate view into the physical, psychological, medical and financial changes Neilly has undergone to shape and explore his gender. He insists on the use of quotation marks around the word “male” stating that his identity is something fluid that cannot be easily defined by use of a single word. For him, his gender and body are a construction of the ways in which he perceives himself and the queer social experiences he has lived. Neilly maintains that his trans identity is not a shift from one sex or gender to another, but rather a continual evolution.
