Is art relevant to us or are we relevant to art?

Is art relevent to us or are we relevant to art?

Stephen Winstanley

I value my time, and I know that nothing comes easy when it comes to art. I have spent a large chunk of my life creating sculptures in a traditional way, and it has set me in good stead, I now have a piece of work that I can say I worked my ass off to get to that level. Now it is my mascot for my new way of working, and I value my time spent well and my stubbornness to strive on through the struggles. Now I work with ceramics and digital design, new territory, yet the struggle is strangely comforting:  signs it must be worth doing.
