CONNECTIONS BLOG

CONNECTIONS
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Inspired?

It's that time again for the Head On festival's ACMP exhibition in Centennial Park, with this years theme 'inspired'. I am really interested to know what can inspire someone. What inspires you?

How can an image impact someone? I find I react to simple, honest images that trigger something inside me. Does that mean I'm simple inside?? Maybe we react to something that we can relate to or we already feel something about.

I entered my seascapes because I love their beauty, the drama and the sense of something bigger than ourselves. Instead of supplying text I included song lyrics for each image.  I see the seascapes as an access and an illustration of feelings held inside; things that we may not wear on the surface but where our minds wander to in quiet times.

What inspires you?

Thank you

A big thank you to everyone who came down to support me at the Sydney Art Show.  It was inspiring to be surrounded by so many talented folk and to get such positive feedback. My calming romantic seascapes generated a-lot of interest, and a few sales. Drop into the studio if you want to see the collection first hand! The large artworks really create a mood in the room.

Your Beautiful Soul

Come see my latest collection of work, Your Beautiful Soul at Art Sydney this weekend. I have 2 free tickets to send to the first person to email me, christian@mushenko.com.au.

Show is open 10-4:30, October 14-16

Would love to see you there!

A collection of lush seascapes that mirror the drama and emotion of the human spirit. The ocean and sky are the canvas in abstract works of texture and colour that remind us of our vulnerability and belief, love and longing, life and a beautiful soul.

I'm excited to announce that I've published my first ever book to go along with the collection.  Take a look here. I'd love to know what you think.
