mission MUSE: "what inspires you?"
by guest muse - Iro Nassopoulos (Ivy)
I'm inspired a lot by travelling, the different cultures I get to know and especially the architecture of the cities, the design which might be predominant in each of them.
I also love nature and adore interiors which incorporate natural materials and a similar colour palette....I'm ever in love with natural light and white as a colour which includes them all.
Human nature and the experience of various emotions and feelings is also a means of inspiration, especially when it comes to expressing emotions through art...not only is it therapeutic, it can also be very creative.
Finally, I'm inspired by the concept of love and how this is translated in our every day lives...from our jobs to the important close people in our lives, to the environment where we live, to our behaviour, thoughts, to the every day routines we choose to engage in.
Love as an expression of art
Love of wire: art installation made of wire, repurposed ceramic pots and sand. It was made back in 2004, when I somehow decided to express my quest in finding love, experiencing and realising what it actually is also through art.
Autumnal Love: a photograph of a handwritten (in a stich like manner) with silver ink "Love" on dried autumn leaves
Cupcake Love: handwritten with chocolate "love", on cupcake forms
The depth of love : a photograph of the art installation mentioned at the first picture.
