Whether you’re a mathematician tinkering with complex equations or a musician pairing discordant notes together, searching for inspiration can often send you in circles. The longer you sit and wait for an epiphany to strike, the harder it gets to make progress.

What if you could get unstuck by turning to your muse?

This month, Ottawa-based visual artist Marisa Gallemit will share her musings on the unwieldy process of finding expansive mentors, foraging the imagination and trusting in the potency of our own innate ingenuity.

Marisa believes that old things tell stories and is motivated by the concept that every object carries its own history and energy.

Marisa manipulates, deconstructs and distorts objects into sculptural compositions which mimic the corporal and the natural, exploring the odyssey of human emotion, identity and heritage.

Her three-dimensional works use repurposed materials, rhythmic forms and organic textures, acting as tactile monuments to our collective and subtle human experiences.
