Where Does Art Reside ?

Art Quote of the Day

“GOING TO THE INFINITE WELL- Find any object that somehow is metaphorically descriptive of you, and make sixty one-minute variations of that object using any medium of your choice,(pencil,charcoal, paints, etc.) Next, take one of the sixty most engaging to you and in six five-minute works extend that image further down the road of your imagination each time.Finally, take one of these six variations- the one most pregnant with further possibilities- and take it wherever it wants to go.
GOING TO THE INFINITE WELL is essentially a boundary-breaking encounter exercising the limits of imagination. It is alternately exhiliarating, and fatiguing , but there is little at risk here…..”
