The White Pube // ARTISTS LUNCHTIME CRIT

 

At the crit last satdee, there were little moments of conversation about editing, feeling, airport security, and art that goes all out maximalist ; but we want to circle back round to whether or not a piece of art you make is finished.

GRAY WIELBINSKI // ARTISTS’ LUNCHTIME FEEDBACK

An unofficial theme of today could be contemplating the notion of process in any practice: how does our work and the narratives we have around it function in the every day? How can we talk about and express “process” in our practices and our lives at large? In what ways are we pushed in or pressured to expedite or neatly package feelings and experiences that aren’t meant to or won’t be tidy?

Illustration is everywhere [Jhinuk Sarkar // ARTISTS LUNCHTIME FEEDBACK]

I see illustration everywhere, I’m a bit obsessed…

I think it began when I started getting interested in music and used to pour over the lyrics in an album cover, then turned my attention to the album artwork. The artwork was an advert for the music, it represented what the creator of that music wanted me – the audience – to understand about the sound. It translated a concept from one artform into another. For me this is magical, and what I love about illustration.

Hazel Brill // Artists Lunchtime Crit

She suggested singing before a presentation, warm up your voice and get used to the sound of it.

Crits can sometimes be anxiety inducing; the formality of them, the dynamics between people, the distribution of ‘voice-time’, intimidation, tangents, miscommunication.

this and this and this and this and this and this and this [Anita Wadsworth // Artists Lunchtime Crit]

What anchors us when we doubt the beauty that we are making?

 

My anchor of choice for the session this month was this, which we loosely clung to throughout. It’s slippery and it sometimes made us laugh, but laughing is good. The other anchor was dance – partly as I know it deeply and partly as I wanted to see how questions in our own work might be answered through another artform.

BRYONY GILLARD // ARTISTS LUNCHTIME CRIT

Our crit was really well attended with many of the group wanting to share work.
For this reason, we tried to fit in discussing as many people’s work as possible, which led to a fast paced and lively discussion. In retrospect it might have been better to focus on just 2 or 3 artists, but there was some great energy in the room and it felt important to nurture this, so we opted for a short presentations by 5 artists.

Dipping our toes into creative courses…

As many may already know, Turf is currently operating out of temporary spaces with a limited lifespan, which we’ll be turfed out of sometime next year due to the impending Westfield development here in Croydon. As a result we’re starting a few paid courses and workshops to build up savings for a (hopefully more permanent) move in the near future.
