There’s as many atoms in a single molecule of your DNA as there are stars in the typical galaxy. We are, each of us, a little universe.
Thank you. Sorry, I’m not sure I really quite grasp the question but I’ll try. Are you asking how to develop your own artistic practise/be a practising artist once out of art school? What I have found is a lot of people once they have finish there degree stop producing art and it saddens me to see that. Making art still and maintaining your involvement in the art world is important I believe if you’re serious about it. There’s things like applying for exhibitions, art prizes/awards, grants or going to galleries, getting involved in artist run initiatives (ARI’s) and supporting local ARI’s, getting a presence out there. You may discover its not for you and that another path whether creative or not is more appropriate.
I began realising my practise more (I’m still figuring things out) during my third year of my undergraduate degree. Researching on what things fascinated me and critically engaging with these things really helped develop my practise. You learn new things all the time if you’re up for it.
It’s not an easy road.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, stay involved and keep making.
I currently really like the work of Clay Mahn, Amy Watson, Nathan Prouty, Arturo Herrera, Paul Williams, Jennifer Mehigan, Tom Hancocks, the works of Tully Arnot and Charles Dennington particularly there collaborative work. I like a lot of peoples works that I have not listed.
