Love antique maps? Grayson Perry’s Map of Nowhere is an incredible modern interpretation.
TateShots: Grayson Perry, studio visit
“Grayson Perry afforded us the rare opportunity of a visit to his studio in Walthamstow, north-east London. Describing pottery as his gimmick, Perry goes on to show us his process before explaining why he wants people to be able to just enjoy art, rather than having to interpret it.”—Tate
(I adore this man so very, very much. He humbly says he’s got a gimmick, but his work is so incredibly sincere. As an artist he gives such golden words on the art world, on artmaking, and the truth of what you think and feel looking at art when no one’s around.)
A fascinating look into Grayson Perry’s process for making his vases. I completely agree with his thoughts on drawing though, it’s so much more enjoyable when you aren’t stressing about making it realistic nor perfect.
Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. [x]
