Gail Ritchie Contemporary Art
Things need to change but what power do we have as individuals to change things on a global scale? As artists, do we have a responsibility to speak out or this is presuming an importance which we don't have beyond our own limited sphere of contacts? Who is listening anyway? Who has the time? As this year ends and another one is about to begin , I have been reflecting on the nature of Time as a finite resource and how it seems to run out more quickly for some people than it does for others depending on wealth, social circumstances and geo-political position. You never know the minute... cometh the hour, cometh the man, the shortest day, the longest night, tis the season.... In the words of TS Eliot , how do we find 'the still point of a turning world' when the world itself is in turmoil? I don't have the answers to any of these questions. Therefore, instead of speaking out, I am still thinking and giving myself time for the answers to come. I hope, in this coming year, that people across the world find the stillness they deserve.
This is where you will find news about exhibitions, projects, events, other artists, travels, experimental work and sometimes things that I just enjoyed seeing! I hope you enjoy them too!
