Art world links which caught my eye…
It takes space to make art: physical, mental, and temporal space.
As busy and as challenged as we all are, it can be hard to create those kinds of spaces. I found this article has some solid, practical advice on how to make art happen.
1. Organize your workspace and limit decisions
Whether you have a dedicated studio or make your work on the kitchen table, the concept is the same: organize your workspace so you can get to work and clean up quickly.
For a couple of years when I lived in a particularly small apartment, a small cardboard box held all my materials, and I made my work on our dining room table. Because this was a small table and we used it for meals, I had to put away everything after making my work each day. This created some limits around the size and materials I could use, which was helpful because it forced me to make decisions before starting projects.
I mention limiting decisions because the less thinking you have to do when you start, the easier it is to make your work. So do a little planning: define a project, prepare a bunch of paper, panels, or whatever you’ll need to make your work, pick your medium(s), and commit to working on this particular project for a week or a month, or any length of time you’ll choose to dedicate to it.
