It has always been my shape of choice, the circle. Below I flashback to some of the more memorable circle adventures I have attended. Through this exercise I am excited and surprised at the versatility of the circle as a ceremonial space.

Very intrigued and inspired by the discussion seen here between sculpture and image making. The images take on an evidence like quality, these are the actual objects from the painting this well dressed man in the image is contemplating. Continue reading
While listening to a pod cast featuring Artist Jeff Weiss, I learned of the nightly emails he sends out. These emails contain art news – all sorts of interesting articles, tidbits and gossip. Weiss has formed this evening event by cutting and pasting the art news of the day in a creative and often amusing way- then posts it out to recipients that have requested to belong to the group. He calls the emails – old news and I thoroughly recommend requesting to join. Be warned – you may get a strange reply or maybe even a no, he is an odd character.
If you are interested email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask if you may join the group.
Aspects Of Upritchard’s art practice that resonate with me as discussed in the article ‘Psychic Pushing by Heather Galbraith in Upritchards book ‘Save Yourself’.

Just listened to Grayson Perry’s Reith lectures on you tube – brilliant.
Perry discusses all the juicy topics such as ‘what is art? says who? and why?’ in a very affable and relaxed manner. Great insight from an artist right in the thick of the contemporary art world.
As I was sculpting with clay at the time I listened, I did not take notes to report back on my blog, so my post here is really just to let you know these 4 lectures are well worth a listen – I will re listen to them at some stage and jot down some notes so keep posted – Thanks to Paris for mentioning these talks in her blog
