My artwork is about the concept of time and place.
This post today is about my intention to become more involved in understanding myself and my artwork contextually to art history and the human experience.
To be able to speak well about my work and know it inside and out.
Who am I and where I live is only as interesting with what I make of it.
When I learned that human females are born with oogonia aka immature eggs and once they are gone, they are not replenished. (unlike what the male equivalent does). I thought, hmmm, does that mean that part of my DNA was present with my mother at her birth?
Is half of me as old has half of all my brothers and sisters?
I intend to read, think, and write. And eat and make art :)
Here are a few of the books I plan to read:
- Orlando, by Virginia Woolf
- Ongoingness, the End of a Diary, by Sarah Manguso
- Incompleteness, by Rebecca Goldstein
“An hour, once it lodges in the queer element of the human spirit, may be stretched to fifty or a hundred times its clock length,” Virginia Woolf
