Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Friday is introspection day
artw*nk is nearly over. I continue to fluctuate between the pretensions of an artist, the quest for recognition in my current field of "work" and the idea of an easy office life where my worst critic will be myself and my head will be kept as down as much as my mouth allows.

However, what seizing the zeitgeist and developing a narrative to my work has done is expose me to more people doing different things in a way I hadn't understood. This is only a good thing and I'm less of a wallflower in discussions than I was 11 weeks ago.

Plus I have some more books on my wishlist - having focussed an interest on John Coplans and the old favourite enfant terrible Robert Mapplethorpe. Now Mapplethorpe seems to demonstrate perfectly the blurs between art, pr0n and paedophilia - certainly his online content at the Guggenheim website rides roughshod over boundaries with its NWS pictures of child nudes.

I get this sense of desire to know and do more - maybe I should do an MA...

Or at the very least, going back to where I started, get on with plans...

And finish that new website.

When my brother graduated from art college I went to look around the exhibitions of everyone's work. It was really cool, and I think studying in a more formal way does force you to challenge yourself and try different things.
