Art Studio

February 26, 2011

This is a run through of the art studio this last year. Outside of studying art in an academic institution I have generally made do and responded to my temporary studio, exhibition and living spaces. Larger spaces as you may predict, result in larger work/projects. In smaller spaces smaller detailed and defined work often emerges. Intimacies of the work and methods change, but neither is more right (until the results are in much later down the road, I suppose).

Some interesting things happen in this space- in this head place. Interesting try-outs here, push the ideas and execusion standards up towards that final product. In the excitement of it all, it can produce lots of starts and no finishes in sight, like a novelist finding his storyline hooks that keep you reading yet without resolution.. Not without a bit of grit. My studio always feels like something I am always sinking into, there is so much I have not finished, so much potential I know there is a sort of infinite feeling attached- like the collection of books with some many worthy titles I have only dipped into briefly. Is it a guilty feeling? As Borges wrote in a short story The Theologians: “Like all those possessing a library, Aurelian was aware that he was guilty of not knowing his in its entirety.”

Mine comes with a sense of decision making overload, (looking at his personal library he has not yet read) like knowing time is passing and you could be doing those many many things which give you (and your loved ones) pleasure or working towards the things you would like to say you have done.

    Your studio looks like an intricate maze, forbidden from the outside world.

    I am curios about the dog…
