Continuing my somewhat diary-entry post, yet still relevant when revealing insights into my personal artistic practice, I would like to share with you some of the works by artists that inspire me; as I apply the finishing touches to my Masters thesis which is due at the end of September, I am in the company of such heavy weights every day... their constant inspiration reminds me why I chose to pursue this life and not another...

Max Sudhues (GER)

If you are interested in light based or temporal art I encourage you to look at these three artists. All are contemporary and are helping shape this relatively new (in the grand scale) art form into a force to be reckoned with. Light based and temporal art is becoming more and more collectable (hurrah!) as the world embraces the synaesthetic responses that these works can evoke. We are now accustomed to allowing artworks to engage with us on more than a mono-receptive level. Thank you for letting me share 3 of my all time favourites with you (of course there are plenty more where that came from but sadly I have a thesis that I am procrastinating from!)
From now on the lovely Kate will be taking over our blog. With her finger on the pulse of all things arty and interesting, the Kaleidoscope Gallery blog will be in very fine hands indeed. I look forward to reading her lovely tales of visual and philosphical whimsy.
In the meantime, remember that although it is sometimes difficult to find the time, we all need to remember why we chose our particular paths. If your career is not driven by your passion, then perhaps it was chosen for the freedom to return to whatever it is that excites you in your downtime. Dont lose sight of what makes you 'whole'.
Love and light,
