Studio Interludes

As part of my artist residency here at the Free University, I offer a weekly 'Studio Interlude' to researchers on the Cinepoetics project. People come into my studio at lunchtime or at the end of the working day to spend time with the process of art-making. It's turning into a very formative space for all of us. And fun.

Today I have moved my red sofa in front of the large picture we are creating together. My response to monolithic modernist art galleries is to question whether looking at art needs to be uncomfortable, or whether looking and seeing might actually be more rewarding without 'museum legs'...

A Studio Interlude includes lots of looking, some drawing or painting, and making connections between painting and film. We're building a shared vocabulary and I'm happy to see theories being visualisied on office walls and artworks appearing alongside computers.
