THE GAME ROOM
Tuesday Nights is the name of our class and The Game Room is where we meet when we are not together.
Got a idea that just can't wait...tell us about it.
You need to hash something out, maybe we can help.
Or maybe you just want to see what everybody else is up to.
Post links, post pictures, post questions or just ask one.
I teach through action and immersion. Just keep moving, contemplate later. In art, for me at least, there are times of rest and contemplation, and times of work. Art making is a time for work. It is the time to pull from the mental and make physical. Create a reality, a piece of art. For this the contemplative brain needs to move over, the art critic side isn’t even invited to the party. Learn to ask and answer your own questions on the move. The sooner I can get you making art the better. Get something done and then we have something to talk about.

I have not been able to post to the Blog, but have really loved this…
I just Googled Marcel Duchamp and went through a fantastic webpage “Making Sense of Marcel Duchamp.” I found it so fascinating, it goes through his whole life and art in chronological order. I was especially excited getting to his last work. What a phenomenal life! Wow! http://understandingduchamp.com/
As I have been contemplating playing with recycled or discarded objects, have thought about how to some people trash looks like something to be discarded, and to me, well I see potential. To express differing points of view I have been considering using some peepholes to provide little “surprise bonus” to those who participate and look closely into the piece. I like the idea even better now that I have seen Duchamp’s last project, the gate with the two peepholes. Love it!
