"...maybe the studio critique, the studio practice is simply the kind of preliminary training ground by which we might transform the world..."

Studio Art / Gallery Art / Reality Art /
With one foot firmly planted in traditional mixed-media artmaking, I'm slowly stepping into the cross-disciplinary space where art sheds its autonomy and becomes a partner in the co-creation of new realities.
Drawing inspiration from Tania Bruguera's Arte Util, Theaster Gates' social practice art and the multitudes of "outsider artists" who are hard at work in other fields building elegant solutions to complex problems, I'm interested in what art can do when freed from its reductionist restrictions.
