“Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art.”—Brian Eno (via jessiethatcher)
How long have you been creating zentangles? They are gorgeous! I've just begun so I'm a novice but I'm loving it. Really enjoy your art.
Not long at all! I only discovered zentangling about a year and a half ago. It struck a cord with me because I had been doing something like zentangling since I was a kid, but it was much more free form and abstract. Tangling has a structure and method that inspired a totally new way to approach the rest of my artwork… even though it’s such a simple idea. I see you have a bunch posted. They look awesome! I think they get more satisfying (and better) the more you make them. I’m only just now feeling like I can get into a proper groove, because I don’t practice them very often, and it’s more fun every time. Your artwork is so lovely! Keep at it!
