'visiting studios' creates the opportunity to take a brief look at some of the current practice and work-in-progress by invited artists.
"If you want to create a space for innovation, you won't get far by cloistering yourself away from the world and waiting for inspiration to hit you.
CHANCE FAVOURS THE CONNECTED MIND".
from a book by Steven Johnson called Where Good Ideas Come From.
I am also blogging as a way of keeping my studio activity flowing and present. I do this to prove the existence of my labours to myself and to others, when there are no exhibitions its still continues... I Fall in and out of love with the studio as a 'situation' for making stuff, I often feel like it is both a place where creation and decay happen in equal measures...Amanda Franciswww.blackstudioart.blogspot.com
