There’s no artist credit here, alas, so I feel a bit uncomfortable passing it on…but this piece is just so very, very beautiful. Perhaps someone here will recognize it and let me know who the artist is, so I can credit her or him properly?
And let this please be a plea for always including artist credits here on Tumblr. The artists deserve it.
Edited to add: the question has been answered! This piece is “Moth,” by the Assemblage artist Sue Griffiths. I’m very glad to be introduced to her work. Thank you, Tumblristas!
All over the world major museums have bowed to the influence of Disney and become theme parks in their own right. The past, whether Renaissance Italy or ancient Egypt, is reassimilated and homogenized into its most digestible form. Desperate for the new, but disappointed with anything but the familiar, we recolonize the past and future. The same trend can be seen in personal relationships, in the way people are expected to package themselves, their emotions and sexuality in attractive and instantly appealing forms.
