I think, this is the final post on ‘ What Keeps You Motivated to work in the arts…” Thanks to all those who contributed…..another debate to come!
@marjojo2004 Art-making – best conversation with the world. Open. Speculative, Undogmatic. Best way to surprise yourself by what you say.
Best way to probe relationships betw things, animate/inanimate, now/then. Wakes up parts you didn’t know were alive in you.
@JunoDoran boundless possibilities
And from painting friends at Luna Park, where I recently exhibited at the Lion and Lamb Gallery which is a fantastic artist led space, run by Turps Banana Editor Peter Jones & Katrina Blannin
The show was Curated by Jake Clark which included Jeffrey Dennis, Robin Dixon, Gunther Herbst and Jake Clark.
Justin Hibbs: Having the space to make something your own. Its addictive
Gunther Herbst: Affirmation….Stops you wasting time. Something to do which is enjoyable and exciting.Not knowing the outcome. The journey of the unknown….that and the cocktails.
Robin Dixon: To lose yourself.
Mandy Hudson: I don’t know what else I would do. It is something I am good at.
Kirk Morrison: The challenge of bringing something larger to life, that’s in your imagination.
And a quote from Jim Morrison:
“ I just want to get my kicks before this hell hole goes up in fire. “
