VIEWLIST: Bulletin Board: Inspiration Information, Conceived by Karen Schifano

Douglas Melini

Our third VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by New York painter Karen Schifano.

The word “inspire” (originally meaning “to infuse with breath”) is a verb, but can also transform itself into a noun or adjective. It’s very active, and yet also implies being receptive, even demands openness, a readiness to receive, and a sharpening of perception and awareness. From one thing, there is a direct connection to another thing, a kind of touch that is nurturing, rich and full of promise. Potential becomes realization; we wake up rejuvenated, re-energized, and ready for action.
