Reacting to Art
my name is: Jacob Jonas with Jill Wilson of Jacob Jonas The Company.
i'm sharing: Photos of me and dancers of Jacob Jonas The Company from our #CamerasandDancers meetup at the Getty .
this was inspired by: A visit to the Getty, where the mediums of dance and photography came together to create content and community and build collaborative, long-lasting relationships. My goal is to let readers value the life of choosing to be an artist as much as the art they create. In truth, I love going to the Getty to see how others react to the art, architecture, and each other. That in itself is art.
to me, inspiration is: I am inspired by artists who won’t let limitations and normality guide their needs to express themselves. Inspiration exists in many places and in various facets. When you're at the right time, right place, and right mindset, it passes through you, causing a burst of creativity and new ideas. One of my favorite quotes is one by Pablo Picasso who says, “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working."
