Last night I attended the inaugural Philosophy Café in
Ipswich. It was a really enjoyable evening, vibrant conversation, good coffee and an engaging speaker (thankyou Gil!).
One little aside has had my head swimming ever since… Whilst discussing what is or isn’t art, an audience member voiced her opinion that communication (or a desire to communicate something) was a key ingredient she used to measure if something was art. I have always held a belief that passion was a necessary ingredient in art and now that I ponder it, communication hits a chord and rings true for me as well.
“Is Communication the Key?”

Encaustic and collage on timber

I’ve put together this little encaustic collage whilst I have been pondering this morning. I’ve never worked with typography in my artwork before. I’d love to know what you think… Both about this little piece and what you think art is…
