Changing Topics Conversation: Art and Fear
Artists participating in the discussion of "Art and Fear" : Ivan Carmona, Aleka Tomlinson, Ben Skiba, Thomas Orr, Paige Wright, Jordan Pieper, Horatio Law, Dirk Staschke, Joanna Bloom (not pictured).
This month we gathered to discuss personal perspectives on the topic of " Fear " with artists working in a variety of media from functional ware to installation and public art. Perfectionism seemed to be a common stumbling block, with one artist offering a personal tale about the freedom they found in deliberately befriending imperfection. A valuable reminder was that though “sometimes you need that person that loves everything you do, you (also) need a trusted source you respect to talk to you about your ideas, process, work". Thank you conversation attendees!
