I've been playing

I have settled into my studio and have started experimenting. After a brief conversation today in my studio with the Head of Art & Design a conclusion was reached. It was suggested that perhaps 'experimenting' was too 'scientific' and what we do (or should do) as artists is play. I agree with this - so yes I have been playing. This is 'playing' with freedom - but NOT without thought. So far this experience has given me the opportunity to explore, take a few risks and focus. Perhaps this 'playing' has been missing from my practice for a while, due to tight deadlines and lack of time.
