THE MUSE PROJECT celebrated the muse as a form of artistic expression. It also celebrated the imaginal spirit that guides Kavanagh’s work. For Kavanagh, inspiration is not a muse goddess per se, but rather a fleeting apparition sparking recognition in her interior landscape of visual memory. It brings her to a place where spirit shapes artistic vision. In THE MUSE PROJECT Kavanagh tried to express, in stylized form, the spirit of some of the artists she finds inspirational.
