Such inspiration - Anila Quayyum Agha
We just had our 3rd seminar this weekend - which was amazing! We - is a group of MFA graduates from Whitecliffe College - and we meet up twice a year to support each other, work together and get inspiration for our work.
It's always amazing to meet up with like-minded people - but even better when you've spent 2 years of your life - on and off - with these people. Such a lovely bunch!!
We have 2 seminars a year and every time we have a guest speaker - just to add a bit of fresh air to the group. This time it was Phil Dadson - and what an amazing guy. So humble and generous - yet so clever and sharp.
The good thing with this seminar was that we've now kind of established what it is we want to get out of this group and how to get it to work. And we are all determined to go forward.
So we've set ourselves a challenge - the April Challenge. Next seminar is going to have only one item on the agenda - to meet up with 1-3 pieces of new art - with the theme; In-fluhks. We are then going to spent the morning looking at what everybody has produced and try to find 'harmony' in how the work will connect - and then hopefully have some external feedback in the afternoon.
Here's a few photos from the seminar:
Finished - 'Self-talk'
Finished the painting - yahooooo. It's called 'Self-talk' - as the colours somehow seems to remind me to 'talk nicely' to myself - to be positive in everything I do. I love this quote by Bob Proctor 'Don't be a victim of negative self-talk. Remember you are listening'..... how true is that!!
Had an amazing experience yesterday - the Arboria. (Built in 2015, Architects of Air’s 22nd luminarium - Arboria, is dedicated to the theme of ‘trees’).
Was very lucky to be there while the sun was shining, which I'm sure means a lot when it comes to the colours.
Me.... and if in doubt go to 'About Me'
