Blog discovery: The Jealous Curator
If you haven´t already met the Jealous Curator — it´s about a time.
There is one moment, in the first few seconds, when you look at a piece of art and know that you love it. It’s the moment when, if you’re an artist yourself, you look at it and feel a rush of uplifting inspiration… and total soul-crushing jealousy all at the same time. It’s when you walk away thinking, “Damn, I wish I thought of that.”
As a daily visitor to her inspirational blog — I asked the active blogger for a favor. To name her favorite emerging artists of today — as an artists monitor and a noted aesthete. Her choses were the following:
Ben Skinner (Canada)
Anne Lindberg (USA)
Maurizio Anzeri (Italy)
Deidre But-Husaim (Australia)
Anthony Zinonos (UK)
“Pillhead” by Anthony Zinonos. Collage.
The blogger explanation for the use of the “jealousy” term, which many people relate to a negative emotion, is:
I once heard someone say that when jealousy is kept inside it becomes toxic, but as soon as it’s said out loud, it transforms into admiration.
I couldn´t agree more with her. Official jealousy can namely be a successful tool when it comes to appreciation and a sense of humor.
