Currently, I am reframing this huge aquatint by Joan Miró. Sometimes, while working, I get a little giddy when I think about how I have my grubby little hands all over a piece of paper that Miro did as well. Like his artistic powers reside within the paper and by touching it, I will absorb something of him. I call this phenomenon Quantum Artistic Power Transference. Of course it’s not real. But the feeling is real and I think it’s something we all experience from time to time- that ineffable quality of being connected – to history, to talent, to something outside of ourselves.
So tell me, do you ever get that ‘connected’ feeling? What triggers that experience for you? It doesn’t have to be art. It could be the sight of Ada Lovelace’s favorite T-shirt or Jimi Hendrix’s Fender Strat.
