This summer I went to The Art Institute of Chicago. I was mesmerized by Bisa Butler Portraits. They are powerful and delicate at the same time. You can admire them from the distance, with their bright colors and striking composition, and from very close, where you see the fabric layers, the different material and threads that she uses to paint.
Random Stuff I Liked
Heavy: An American Memoir A great book. I think I got the recommendation from The Audacity newsletter from Roxane Gay, that I also enjoy reading.
This song from The Jesus And Mary Chain with Hope Sandoval.
Hillbilly Elegy on Netflix.
Another book that opened my eyes to the nature around me and put me to sleep many many nights because it can be oh so boring and so good at the same time.
Life goals now that my 45 birthday is in a couple of months.
