Teresa Margolles won the Artes Mundi award! Hurrah! YAY! Go have a look at the New Blood Art blog to see some words I wrote about her wonderful work. So very glad she won. There couldn’t have been any one else in my mind.
I am thoroughly preoccupied with job hunting at the moment, and so the art is suffering. You’d think that with all this time on my hands I’d be making loads of stuff…. Oh Em. Come on. Do something. Still drawing (always drawing), but nothing much to show. Have some lovely little sketches.
Important Words. Mementos? Little bits of stories, bits of me. Things are not quite as they seem. Ambiguous. Happy, sad, bittersweet (I hope). And somewhat sarcastic. Find your own meaning, give these words your own significance. Yes, do that. I don’t want to see them any more.
