Eclectisism

I love art, all art. My interests are so varied, who knows what rabbit hole it will lead me down. Maybe one day I'll find Wonderland.
Me as too cool for school as I get - wishing I could #Escape the day I go to the hospital and #Journey very far away. Rocking to #StevePerry obviously. πŸŽ€πŸŽΈπŸŽ΅πŸ“»πŸ”ŠπŸŽ€ (Note: this is a #latergram. Doing well as can be!)

I can’t fully explain why, but ever since I have had the opportunity to visit some of the great museums and been able to fully appreciate sculpture I instantly gravitated towards the feet. 

Probably for many reasons. One, I was a ballet dancer and always looking for inspiration. The lines I was seeing on these works of art was so often everything I aspired to. But I think what captured my fascination the most was that so often it is what you are eye-level with. 

Their beauty is so ethereal as it hovers above you, but then a glance at the pedestal and so often there are their feet. You are essentially inches away from a work carved so long before you even existed. Somehow it felt like a connection to all my history books. 

And then there was that tiny detail that a person could easily overlook, but still made beautiful. 

This is the first in a series I want to share and is also my favorite. This sculpture is in the Greek Gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Watch star ballerina “Tanny” (Tanaquil Le Clercq) in action in these five fantastic gifs showing off her technique and flair.  

Unmissable documentary. Unmissable dancer. She has, and will always be, my favorite. #TanaquilLeClercq

Happy Memorial Day to all. Thank you does not seem appropriate for all the brave souls who have served our country - from the Revolutionary War to today.

…As this will be me tomorrow when I realize I will have to wait an entire year for the final episodes of #MadMen - and also process it is the end of my favorite series.
