Wabi Sabi has brought this concept fully to the fore of my attention.
Something I feel strongly about, of which my work is partially about.
The very essence of what I feel the Art of Utopia to be, for me at least..
Timely, Two artists talks today spoke of making art outside of the realms of ‘technical accomplishment’.. Where the product itself was the emphasis rather than high end technical brilliance.. A kind of making do with the resources afoot and exploring them without the constrictions of technical perfections. The result: Original works that were successful (even commercially so) due to their adhoc non conformist conception…
Certainly in my eyes, the very essence of the Art of Utopia.
