“The feelings of desperation and unhappinness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desperation and unhappinness stretch your whole sensibility”. A quote by Francis Bacon but one I’m inclined to disagree with. Rufus Wainwright once admitted that he was terrified to settle down into a happy relationship, because without the emotional drama that came from all those dysfunctional love affairs, he was afraid of losing access to ‘that dark lake of pain’ he felt was critical to his music. I disagree that we should all be addicted to suffering, we need to be able to trust pleasure and utilise it to help create art. Too many artists put their faith in anguish. To have faith in the suffering muse, can cause us to become tormented artists, or to fetishise suffering.  To trust love to create art, is more valuable for our mental health. Love your work, love it like it loves you and let it love you. There’s a trust in that love, the fiercest trust of all and I have in spades for you. Huge congratulations to all the artists featured this week.

In keeping with my New Year Resolutions, you’ll find me at the press preview this week of Diane Arbus: In the beginning and Kader Attia: The Museum of Emotion at the Hayward Gallery, SE1. I’ll report back but am expecting it to be nothing short of fabulous. It’s open to the public from 13 February until 6 May.

The path of true love… did it ever run smoothly? I don’t think anyone can say agree positively with that. Arguing the toss with someone you love – can be futile and the consequences make it uncomfortable. Disagreeing with restraint, is the ideal but how many of us do that, all of the time? Whether this week has meant you’ve loaded the dishwasher in silence with your partner, or with strong words and broken crockery, we have to make a time to come together and try not to cross some of the ideological lines. So, how do we do that? How do we get back to that initial feeling of being passionately in love? Well, this week, having cut one of my fingers gravely, way too early in the morning, I’ve been somewhat restricted in what I can do, driving, cooking, typing and washing my hair. Fortunately, my husband took care of the latter yesterday and it was a mutually blissful. Touch is a very powerful feeling and its not just physical, as you will notice when viewing this weeks showcase. You’ll be touched by the powerful mobile imagery and the story that unfolds. Each image a story in itself and built together as one hit musical. Expressing creativity is an essential human trait, if you don’t bring forth what is within you, what you don’t bring forth will destroy you (Gospel of Thomas) – not that I’m terribly religious..  No more is this apparent than in one of Britains treasured artists Tracey Emin and I’m off to meet her this week.  Perhaps best known for her shortlisted Turner Prize 1999, work entitled ‘My Bed’. I’ll report back on how that goes, wishing you all a very beautiful creative, week ahead.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week, it’s one of true splendor.

There’s much humour to be had at my nightstand, not least in the morning when my husband duels with balancing fresh coffee on the piles of books and there’s a particular book, which I feel should be on every woman’s nightstand ‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur. It’s a book of poetry, about healing and hope, discussing themes of love and loss, bringing about an enlightened self. Kaur ends the book with a tender love letter to her readers, thus reads “you have made it to the end. With my heart in your hands. Thank you. For arriving here safely. For being tender with the most delicate part of me. Sit down. Breathe. You must be tired. Let me kiss your hands. Your eyes. They must be wanting of something sweet. I am sending you all my sugar. I would be nowhere and nothing if it were not for you. But was too afraid to be. Do you have any idea how much of a miracle you are? How lovely it’s been and how lovely it will always be? I am kneeling before you. Saying thank you. I am sending my love to your eyes. May they always see goodness in people and may you always practice kindness. May we see each other as one. May we be nothing short of in love with everything the universe has to offer and may we always stay grounded. Rooted. Our feet planted firmly onto the earth”. This book will certainly not be everybody’s cup of tea, I know that and I am overlooking it. If it helps just one of you, then I am happy to mention it here.

You’ll feel ravished after viewing this weeks blockbuster mobile photography and art showcase. This art not only gives pleasure to our eyes but also to our minds. Each artists’ acute eye, great instincts and improvisational impluses are all on abundant display. Complexities within our imagery can’t or won’t be unravelled, whether featuring, street photography, portraiture, still life, abstract; each image is both exact and indifferent, getting under your skin and changing how you see the world.  This art mixed with this life are inextricable, all writhing together, enjoy!

A husband hits his wife to silence her. A date rapist or acquaintance rapist refuses to let the “no” of his victim mean what it should, that she alone has jurisdiction over her body. Rape culture asserts that women’s testimony is worthless, untrustworthy. Anti-abortion activists also seek to silence the self-determination of women. A murderer silences forever. These are assertions that the victim has no rights, no value – is not an equal“, an extract from Rebecca Solnit’s book ‘The Mother of All Questions’ and it’s highly appropriate today. No, I will not be silenced. No, I will not allow my FB page to go black. Right now, we are strong, women are rightfully gaining their power. Silence is what has allowed predators to rampage through the decades unchecked and women have died for it. So, I have published this week’s spectacular Flickr Group Showcase of Mobile Art and Photography, it tells so many stories and we still have so far to go. Enjoy!

I began again, after lovemaking, to experience the sense of heightened interconnectedness, which Romantic poets and Painters called ‘the Sublime.” Ah yes, another week and another book, this time ‘Vagina: A New Biography’ by Naomi Wolf, it’s not actually new, I’m just a little late to this particular party. So… yes, Wolf explains that during orgasm, she achieved the ability ‘to see ‘colours as if they were brighter‘. This was actually, until she started having a bit of trouble altogether and determined to pursue the matter, following a trip to her gynaecologist and then to New York’s finest neurologist, she was diagnosed with a mild form of spina bifida, essentially, her spinal column was compressing the branch of her pelvic nerve that ends in her vaginal canal. This was surgically corrected and before long she was back to her orgasmic best. Which is fabulous, what a relief but I was really more interested in straddling two worlds. Visualising art with increased creativity and sexuality. As I delved deeper, both these effects are well documented in scientific literature, hyper-sexuality results in an increase in creativity. Well, if Harold Brodkey’s ‘Innocence’ is anything to go by, as creative text morphs into creative imagery, yes, there’s sacramental beauty in all that we do, there’s deep joy, in fact the whole shebang is demonstrated in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase. Enjoy!

A choreographed multimedia showcase devised with over thirty of the very best mobile photographers and artists from around the world today. This week we bring you an intense mystical piece, one that forcefully confronts our frailty, as we lurch poleaxed by grief from one image, only to be reanimated with cryptic, expressionistic neoclassical, to the next. Viewing this is a raw process, as is our capacity to create a new life and redefine what an artist means, simultaneously navigating modern life and all of its entails…Enjoy!

To many artists in this weeks Mobile Photography & Art Showcase, and beyond, mobile art is a coping mechanism. Creating art allows us to live alternative lives, whether for ourselves or for our subjects. This weeks showcase should be recognised as own emblem, forever moving forward whilst simultaneously sensing time’s passage, evidence that is cognizant in our art. Dorothea Lange said it best with “A camera is a tool, for learning how to see without a camera“. This week we share a brilliantly delineated context of imagination whilst recognising among the first avant garde artists of the mobile camera. Enjoy!
