Mushrooms from the Forest by Takashi Homma
"I have been in the forest of Fukushima listening to the voice of mushrooms"
"The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love., of sharing, of going into the deepest core of the other person - without possessing the other, without becoming depending on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other."
Lorna Simpson New York Artist + Photographer, The Edit Magazine.
To see a work by Lorna Simpson in person is feel chills unlike any other. The first work I saw, I felt like someone had creeped inside my mind and spilled the guts of my insecurities and history. I wrote more about my love of Lorna back in 2012.
