ART. 01

The digitalisation of art has resulted in social media platforms soaked and overflowing with real art we can never fully appreciate. When online, three-second coffee snaps and artfully constructed photographs are both flicked past without a second glance.

I’m not arrogant enough to think that this – a little online gallery compilation – is really much different. But it’s entirely up to you. Art is measured only by experience and connection. So take a moment, now. Sit somewhere quiet. Press play on the first piece, a spoken poem.

Get inspired.

  2. We are all able to create art now, and sometimes, I fear that we do not look into others work as much as we should. I do notice whilst blogging how not all bloggers are mutually appreciative. I don’t feel bad for me about this or take it personally: but I do worry that some people are really only interested in making work – but it is in the context of something much bigger that makes the work good or bad, i think. Interesting post, thank you.

    • Yes! That we expect others to automatically like, appreciate and view our work, without retuning the favour. I think it comes back to the essentially ‘free’ society we live in – where so many things are free for us (social media platforms, apps, etc.) because they build their profits from advertising. Expectations are that everything online is available for free – and that includes interaction and viewing of art.

      • It’s more than this though. Art is only art in the context of other art: if one doesn’t look at or appreciate other’s work it’s impossible to view one’s own contextually. Art doesn’t exist untethered, free or otherwise. X

    Still wondering how you always manage to write down what I think but don’t know how to express??? (If that even makes sense) Also found this post so inspiring, can’t wait to see your future selections xo

    • Aw thank you! I feel like a lot of our generation ARE having the same thoughts – some just find it easier to express than others. I’m so glad you connected with the idea and theme of this post. Can’t wait to publish the next selection, and hope you’ll enjoy it! x

  4. Beautiful. I love Shane Koyczan and hearing him read his poetry. It’s so powerful. Have you heard his piece “Instructions for a Bad Day”? Thanks for the compilation of art in this post.

  5. It’s true that nowadays we are surrounded by so much art that it’s overflowing. It’s sad to think that when people scroll through their Instagram feed they probably pay attention to 1% of what they see, and they just like the photo unconsciously. I don’t follow a lot of people for that reason, I like to see each photo as something unique

    • Yes! The ‘connection’ we get through social media has negative influences. Too much connection and exposure can numb us to beauty … it all comes back to the print/vinyl/film revolution – the desire to get back to something authentic and raw.
