INSPIRATIONAL 14: PERSONAL PORTRAITS
Inspirational 14 has artists, actors, poets, photographers, writers, directors, activists. All with an understanding and perspective that it is important to be who you are meant to be, rather than who others mean you to be.
I am immensely proud of this issue of Inspirational. These eight artists do exactly what Inspirational always set out to do, and that is to enervate, aspire and inspire. These are artists that are tough, yet vulnerable. Individuals who have, and still are, developing ideas and pathways towards a personal gender, shifting focus away from the imposed gender of male/female, towards one that is personal to them.
They are revolutionising the way we see others, the way we see ourselves. It’s what art does, it’s what it should do. Artists help make sense of the world around us, but they also drive us forwards, allowing us to be more than we expected, more than we felt allowed.
To me, you lose contemporary artists, you lose your humanity.
