5 Growth (Sunday)

We reject many experiences, peoples, places and eras that have something important to offer us because they come in the wrong wrapping and so leave us unable to connect. We are prey to superficial, prejudiced judgements. We think things are “foreign” for too defensively.

ART is A GUIDE TO THE EXTENSION OF EXPERIENCE. Art is an immensely sophisticated accumulation of the experiences of others, presented to us in well shaped and well organised forms. It can provide us with some of the most eloquent instances of the voices of other cultures so that an engagement with artworks stretches our notions of ourselves and our world. At first, much of art seems merely ‘other’ but we discover that it can contain ideas and attitudes that we can make our own in ways that enrich us. Not everything we need to become better versions of ourselves is already to hand in the vicinity.

A chance to look at artists whose names have come to my attention during the week or * people I have chosen deliberately because they approach things in a very different way to me.
