11. Spirit (guitar) by Mary Jackson
I get my inspiration from my muse, Susan. I keep her picture on my work table. She told me, “That guitar needs indigenous Indian geometry and a face”. I do what she tells me and she lets me sign my name, Maja.
I believe humor is in the eye of the beholder and religion and myth have a great sense of humor. I like to keep it centered, or casting a shadow. I like spiritual whimsy. What was Eve thinking?
I have many favorite artists. Two are the painters Zubaran, the abstract dramatist; and Caravaggio who portrays everyone as a cartoon superhero. And I like the variety of cultural geometry, keeping in mind that math is God’s artwork.
