  • taylersometimesThank you for answering. I've always been super interested in the intersection of black womanhood and the art you post on your blog. I was always interested in how the study or interaction with these artistic mediums affected your worldview. I've only recently been able to articulate that but it started out as kinda like OMG she likes the same things I do and she's a black girl! lol.
  • Oh cool, I’m glad that’s what brought you here! Solidarity!

    Honestly, I wish this blog were better curated or that I put more of myself (i.e., my opinions and/or writing) into it. This blog is really just a stress-relieving outlet for my day-to-day life and I know that I could be doing so much more with it art-wise. I’m glad you (or anybody) still feel that you can connect with it in some way.

    If I were more focused, (or y’know, took myself more seriously) I would love to blog more extensively about the intersection of art & black womanhood because it’s something that I deeply care about and think about a lot. Especially black women as creators but also black women in the field of art history! We get so little recognition but I know we’re out here.

  • taylersometimesHow has your studies of art history informed how you see the world?
  • This is a super HUGE question. I think, mainly, art history has helped me to think more critically about everything — what I see, how I think, what I assume & take for granted, how I react, etc. But, in a less ~practical or academic sense, it also adds color and vibrancy and newness to my life and reminds me that the world is an endlessly fascinating place and that there will never not be things in the world to explore and encounter and experience.

    And second chances! Art history has definitely taught me about second chances and coming back to things and re-evaluating and reconsidering. Everything (or at the very least, most things) are worthy of a second look. Because you might find something that surprises you. 

    I feel like this is a super vague answer, I’m sorry. I’m just having a hard time putting all of my many feelings into words. But thank you (for asking)! I’m going to be thinking about this for a while.
