Vintage Silhouettes 50s

Why Fashion?

All business relationships are complex and often more so than personal relations. But adding the artistic, emotional and illogical aspects of the arts business to the pot really gets things boiling.

The State of the Artist # 7

I’m now being challenged by questions: What is Art? Does Life imitate Art? Does Art mirror Life? Can Art exist without Life? Can life exist without Art? Can you see Art all around you? Are you an observer of that Art? Are you a part of it? Would it exist without you? Does a gallery […]

The State of The Artist # 3 – The Muse

I’m sure there are dictionary definitions of the word Muse. I or you can look it up. Maybe I will when this cycle has passed through me. I had heard a great story about a Scottish poetess who was out walking on her land one morning when all of a sudden she felt the presence of the Muse. She hurried home as fast as she could. Her pace was quickened by the fear that if she didn’t get back soon enough, the muse would pass through her and go on to inspire another poet! Interesting. I think that’s part of what this Muse energy is.

The State of the Artist # 2

by Marvin Kanarek I just had an epiphany, maybe it’s The Muse, I don’t know. So I guess I’m fated to continue at least ‘til the end of this little story. I’m a true “dyed in the T-shirt” Hippy way back when during the Yorkville days in Toronto. Living the life of music, free love, […]

In a society where everyone looks the same and originality lacks in everyday life, I find it exciting to see diversity, variance in fashion
