What if we ask ourselves in every moment of every hour of every day for the rest of our lives, “What would I love?” What if we allow ourselves the incredible gift of connecting with our truest and deepest desires?
What if we believe we are not just able or entitled to do so, but that we know that by granting ourselves this gift of connection that we make the world better. Better for ourselves, for our partners, for our children, for the planet. What if the space of art encourages and reinforces this notion? What if the artist by living fully and outwardly and inspiringly and generously shares this notion as an artist, a woman, a mother, a partner, a Yogi, a generator, a friend, a community member? What if paintings and sculptures and installations can become incantations, prayers, experiences? What if all things are not just what they are but are also more? What if the entire universe can be not just captured but encompassed both in the work of art and also in the experience of it? This is not just what I believe, but rather what I know. This is how I know Jen Guidi. This is how I know her work. This is how I am inspired. This is how I practice. This is how I learn. This is how I love. This is how I am. Amen.
