Art is Exponential

Art is exponential: from the original inspiration works are created, which in turn inspire both more works and move both the hearts and minds of its admirers. Art grows from a seed, it blooms, it spawns new tangents, it branches.

A couple of years ago I took this photo at a powwow in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, which in turn inspired this painting by Galina Krasskova that she sold at an artist in residency program. I was there trying to play around with photographing movement, while also celebrating another culture. I tried to capture the expression of movement, and also the artisanal craftsmanship that went into the outfit from the meticulous beading.
