Art and Academia

The relationship of an artist’s work to wider social contexts is a central topic in academia today.  How does one bridge the gap between expressive internal  imperatives and the issues of our time?

There is always a link somewhere between spontaneous, intuitive, impulses and contemporary culture. The link can be found in different ways: through visual connections, historical connections, or philosophical connections among others.

The key is to search out and develop the connections.

There is a creative voice in every individual. Awakening that voice opens up possibilities for new contributions to a variety of communities and lines of inquiry.
