I had an uplifting Easter, thanks to artist Kelsey Montague. She created these angel wings and the social media mania (check out #whatliftsyou) that’s not only bringing art online but merging the lines between the art and the art lover. In this gal’s galleries, we’re encouraged to put ourselves in the picture. I think it’s kind of neat to see the consumer become part of the creation, don’t you?
I’m following in some pretty famous footsteps too. When Kelsey crafted her wings in New York, Taylor Swift put herself in the picture. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I didn’t have to make the trek to NY to be uplifted. Kelsey whipped up these wings during a visit to the Sunshine Coast. Look closely and you’ll spot a few of the area’s icons wonderfully woven into the wings.
As well as asking the viewer to pose for a snap, the work itself poses the question #whatliftsyou? I’ll get us started. I’m uplifted by my best friend, long walks, fossicking in op shops, catch-ups with good friends, winter’s biting breezes, cupcakes…
Now it’s your turn.
