Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and effects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect.
We’ll be doing it again. Mary, Carolyn, and I have met a few times since last March. A new plan for working together took hold yesterday.
My favorite comments (paraphrasing) of the afternoon:
On our working together again: Art’s never the same thing twice.
On crap and coziness: Right now, I’m working over at the Jackson studio. I put crap everywhere. I want to make it cozy. I want to feel like I am working close to my stuff, not be in vast space. I want cozier.
About her work: I want to take the most insignificant, inconsequential things in nature and make them have significance.
On what she might show: I plan to have new large work. And also a large grouping of my Journal pieces. The Journal pieces (each alone), are not very defensible.
(That is to say, they are strong as a grouping.)
About a working title for the exhibit: Particular Purpose…I like the particular.
To Carolyn about why the cat is free to roam my studio: I don’t try to control her. Cause I mostly control everything else (…in the studio).
To Carolyn: How did God come into this conversation?
Carolyn: You brought it up!
…and I won’t say who said it exactly or about what:
Do you see why we want to do this again?
New work. New exhibit. New blog. New media. New Venue.
Museum. Center for the Arts.
